When was Simon Peter actually converted to Christianity?


Once you have answered this question, take a look at Luke 22:31 & 32. Some distinguish belief from testimony and testimony from conversion.

Some have taught that "a testimony is as ephemeral as a moonbeam," and that conversion is a daily effort and goal. What do you think?

    I refer you to 1 Peter Chapter 4 and Peter's own instruction: "Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf."

    Marvelous. The concept of conversion vs. discipleship is very helpful. Makes me reflect on my wife's "lightening bolt" experience and my "from birth" experience. Someone said "we are not to convert but to adopt, going both ways".
