I was not raised as a Christian or in any religion so I never believed in God or Jesus. I became a Baha'i in my first year of college but I was never very religious or close to God and that is a long story.The biggest hurting was abandoning Jesus. Twenty years without Jesus, who I loved as a kid. Now, I'm reading the bible again and I feel returning to Jesus.
Suffice to say that never read one page of the Bible until I started posting on forums about nine years ago and I never thought much about Jesus until I started posting to Christians on forums. After that I had to read parts of the Bible in order to engage in discussions and debates, so I have read parts of the Bible.
Why I have a heartfelt connection to Jesus I cannot really say, but I do, because in times of trouble I always cry out to Jesus and God. Perhaps one reason for these feelings is what Baha'u'llah wrote about Jesus, which sums up my thoughts and feelings about Jesus and what I believe was His mission.
