I was a devout Hindu, a sincere God seeker, a dutiful follower of rituals and traditions and committed to raking up good karma for my next life. A series of miraculous events led me to Christianity. Constant prayers, following Bible principles and seeking after God’s will for my life characterized my Christian life. So far, so good. However, soon the spirit of religion caught up with me. It was disguised as good Christian conduct, self-sacrifice, works of charity, service in the church and the careful observance of every letter in the Bible – as interpreted by church leaders – as a means of gaining God’s approval. Needless to say, not only did it not work, it left me damaged within, wounded in my soul and wanting nothing to do with God . Thus ended my Christian life. What (or who) followed next, was outside the scope of my wildest imagination. His name is Jesus.
By making my very personal and private spiritual journey public through this book, I want to reach out to all those who have been spiritually damaged in their soul and disillusioned by God. I believe that there are many today who are disappointed and deeply hurt by the God whom they have served in spiritually toxic religious groups. Many of us have given up on religion and therefore given up on God, but God has not given up on us. I know that because He did not give up on me. My story is also a love story- A love story that is not for me alone. I wrote this book to let you know that you too are loved with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3)
