Thaddeus shares how he grew up with a false understanding of God, and thought that being a good person would save him. He shares how he chose a party lifestyle at college and struggled with anxiety knowing that he was falling short of God’s standards. Thaddeus’ father passed away after a short struggle with liver cancer. Thaddeus felt anger towards God and severe emotional pain. To please family members he attended a Bible-preaching church, where he felt God’s presence and love for him. Thaddeus heard the gospel there and trusted in Jesus for the removal of his sins. Thaddeus is now experiencing a close and loving relationship with God and values the ability to turn to God in all of life’s circumstances.
