Surfing the internet changed my life
Hi, my name is Balázs.
I’m from Hungary. I live in Budapest.
Let me tell you how I became a Christian. Maybe one year ago, I was at my previous workplace and I was just surfing the internet. I was at a Formula One site, and I saw a banner on the bottom of the site that was very interesting to me. It said, “6 reasons why God might be true.”
And I was interested in it so I clicked on it, and it brought me to the everystudent.com landing site. I read the article and it was very interesting to me, so I read all the other articles that were present on the site. And since it was very interesting to me, I chose to ask a question.
So I wrote my email, and I asked my hardest questions. Let’s see if someone can answer me.
And much to my surprise, I got an answer, and it was ok. I didn’t agree with everything at first, but it was very logical, and it was very clear.
So I wrote another email and got another answer and it was still good, so I started to correspond with a woman, a volunteer, from everystudent and after a while we became sort of friends and we met and I got to know her family.
And were talking about all these different topics about Christianity, and we were talking for months, once every one or two weeks.
And after a while I just ran out of questions, and I just thought, I’m convinced, I can’t reject it anymore. That’s how I became a Christian.
I started to read the Bible, I read the whole New Testament in a week. It was very convincing, I had never read the Bible before. And I started to go to church, to the same place where this volunteer and her family were going, and I was talking with her and her husband about all the different topics.
And after a while, this woman asked me if I wanted to answer some emails like she does, and I thought this might be a good chance to grow in faith even more and have a better view of the bigger picture, so I accepted.
So I kind of switched sides: first I was writing the email and now I am answering them.
Thank you very much.
