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. Simon Peter's path to conversion seems to have been a long and tortured one. Think of his path to conversion, and then examine your own. Where are you along your path? 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 am not sure what caused you to write " I do not care about your perceived horribleness." Perhaps you might clarify that for me.

    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".
