|I was born in Seoul, Korea. As I grew up, I
attended a Presbyterian
church in Seoul, which all my close friends in the
also attended. As
soon as I turned 16, I was baptized because I wanted to become a "real" Christian who
confessed his faith openly. I must
admit that, although my motive
was pure, my understanding
of God was vague at best and my
knowledge of the
Bible was spotty. I graduated from college, I met June, we got
married, Christine was born, and the three of us came to the States.
Our American life began.
A serious encounter with my Creator took place in my late 20s. It changed my life view. But that change involved no decision on my part and my effort to become a dedicated Christian was negligible. It was God's own work. Life must have been weary. I was definitely thirsty. I remember being absorbed into the Word easily, and I was praying more frequently and earnestly. I count them as sweet and delightful memories. The net effect of the big change can be summarized like the following statements -- or, my credo:
If you are interested in discussing any of my views expressed above, I welcome your thoughts. I am confident that you will be as blessed and glad as I am, once you know what I mean.
