Encouraging Quote:

"... at that time my position was like John Wesley, that God loves and intends to save all man, head for head. But God changed my life by sudden departure of my younger sister who died of brain hemorrhage at the age of 22. The question of assurance of salvation after death suddenly popped up both in my mind and my parents’. The Arminian doctrine is of no comfort to us and has brought us much grief! I searched the web for info on the doctrine of assurance and perseverance. I found and downloaded the Heidelberg Catechism and the Canons of Dordt. And I know Holy Spirit was at work then because as I was reading through them, it brought tears in my eyes. My doubt was finally answered [by Heidelberg Catechism] Question 1. ‘What is thy only comfort in life and death?...’ By His grace—since then I continue to read all I could about the Reformed faith and compare it to the Word of God like the Bereans (Acts 17:11)—all via internet downloads and listening to MP3 sermons (e.g., Rev. Angus Stewart on Romans 9). I also shared the doctrines to my parents and my wife—they have accepted, believed and draw comfort from the truth of God’s Election." - Malaysia
