Tom's Story

Thank you! Your partnership means so much to us. We are grateful for the many letters we receive from people touched by CARM. Recently Tom let us know about his experiences with CARM.

Tom said…

“Through my encounter with CARM a seed was planted which was watered by various other ministries and churches over the years before God made it grow.”

Tom grew up in a “religious” home. Five generations on both sides of his family were members of a sect known as the Christadelphians. Although Tom did not know Jesus as his Lord and Savior, tomhe was interested in proving the group’s unusual doctrines were biblical. These positions included denying the deity and pre-existence of Christ, interpreting the devil as an allegory and minimizing the present work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of believers. He believed Christians were wilfully ignorant of the Bible.

One day he discovered the CARM website and was shocked to see it countered Christadelphian teaching with biblical reasoning. His initial response was to take offense. Tom and I engaged in a heated debate on the meaning of John 20:28. This led Tom to a path of study and reflection and eventually the realization he was trusting a system of man-made doctrines for salvation rather than trusting the Lord Jesus Himself.

Today Tom confesses Jesus as his Lord and God. Now living in South Africa, Tom is studying toward a degree in theology. He is also reaching out to others in the Christadelphian community. To God be the glory for drawing Tom to His Son.

Tom went on to say, “God works through His people and  I believe CARM was one of the ways He reached out to me.”
