“About The Unsaved Christian:
This is a compelling and introspective look into the life of a “good’ Christian”. It is a story for all Christians, because it shows the pitfalls that we can all experience. and it is a cautionary tale that shows not only how easily we can be deceived but how blind we can be to deception. Finally, it demonstrates the love of our Father and the fact that if we keep reaching for Him, He will keep lifting us up.

For almost 20 years I thought I was saved. I was wrong. I was an UNSAVED CHRISTIAN. Thankfully, God has spent the last two and a half years patiently showing me the light. It has been a very painful and difficult journey back to the right path but I am grateful to God for the “wake-up” call He gave me. This is what I have learnt: knowing about Jesus, believing that He is the Son of God and even accepting Him as your Savior, does not mean you are saved.
I wrote this book as an act of obedience to Holy Spirit, who instructed me that I am to share my story for the benefit of others like me – those who are asleep, going through the motions of “Christian” existence, but not truly living a conscious and active Christian life. There are parts of my story that are going to be hard to read and parts that may seem difficult to believe, but every word is true.
Many years ago, my mother had this little ornament that said “Please be patient THE LORD isn’t finished with me yet” and that is exactly true – I am a work in progress. I am not perfect, far from it in fact. I have made so many mistakes and messes that I have lost track of the number of them. The worst of it is that I did this all while I thought I was saved and on the path of righteousness.
Although this book is written with the purpose of sharing my story, I wrote using a pen name in order to preserve the privacy of anyone who can be identified by anything that I have shared. While this is my story to tell, I believe it is important not to cause hurt to anyone as I share it with you. Besides, who I am, is not important…I believe what is important is the message that can come from my “mess”.
This book is not about you knowing who I am; it is ultimately for the honour and glory our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. As the chorus lyrics in the song “Only Jesus” by Casting Crowns says: “And I, I don’t want to leave a legacy, I don’t care if they remember me, Only Jesus. And I, I’ve only got one life to live, I’ll let every second point to Him, Only Jesus.”
Today, I thank God for His unfailing love, mercy and grace because He gave me a wake-up call that I could not ignore. I am not yet quite where I need to be and I am still figuring it all out with the help of Precious Holy Spirit, but He told me to share my story and so here it is. I pray that it blesses you and touches you in a real way as you read it.
