Meet The Truth Chasers
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog. Truth Chasers is meant for exposing the truth and lies in our world of what is really out there and for opening the eyes of people, specifically teenagers. As much as this is focused towards those who range from 13-19 since we are the rising generation, this is meant for EVERYONE. The conditions going on in our world are getting ridiculous and they will only continue to get that way if we don't take a stand! It is time that as Christians we stand firm for what we believe. We cannot and will not back down. America and the rest of the world needs to wake up to the fact that if we don't turn to God we are going to put ourselves in our own crisis, bad times are coming ahead and we need to be ready for when Christ returns. We hope and pray that Dear Christian Teenager will inspire you to be more for Christ. Our Saviour has done so much for us that this is just a small thing we can do to be an outreach to other teenagers who want to have a fervent walk with the Lord. If you have any questions, comments, etc... you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

October 30, 2016 was the day I came running to Christ with a broken, bleeding heart. After years of doubt and confusion of whether I was saved or not, back in 2007 I finally grasped the idea that with the right heart and attitude I have full faith and understanding in Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.
The plan to salvation for me was full of emotional breakthroughs and painful heartache. Back in 2015, after my first year in high school, I was totally backsliding against my faith. I had a terrible relationship with my parents and when that happens things don't go too well. I regret to say the only thing that made me change a little was getting an iPod. Honestly the reason I was so angry was because I had nothing to do. But even though I got an iPod my troubles were still lingering. I still felt very empty and I never apologized to my parents for all the heartache and disrespect. I never found happiness with an iPod. I did though communicate everyday with my dearest friend Ang. I don't know where I'd be without her. She is inspirational, fearless, and a God loving I've ever seen, I know it was God's will to bring us together because her influence really impacted my life.
All the missions and debates we did increased my knowledge of YEC and made me want to start reading my Bible everyday, so I could study and memorize it to witness to more people and to defend it against its critics. I even believed God called me to be a missionary to Germany. Maybe He still does.. I was baptized in May and last October I had a conviction for assurance of salvation. By reading "Evidence That Demands Verdict" I realized that you cannot depend on your feelings to be saved, the Bible says through faith ye are saved, through grace!! Feelings will change all the time. That's what I carried about and needed to hear. On October 30, 2015 I asked Jesus to save me from my horrible sins and He saved me!!! I am a new creature in Christ! No longer will I have to wear the chains of sin! It was a glorious and renewing moment.
Ang RanstromIf I were to list everything God has done for me....let's just say many trees would have to be cut
down. I got saved when I was 5 years old. My dad was in the hospital and I was at a friend's house and I remember on her desk I saw a gospel tract. I asked her about it and in a few moments I was born again. All my life I have grown up in a Christian home with parents that love the Lord and want to serve Him. Nothing really seemed to click for me though. I understood salvation and basic Bible doctrine but there was no intense desire to serve Him and surrender my life to His work. 5 years later, when I was ten, I was at a church camp and God spoke to my heart about giving my all to Him. Even as young as then I knew God was calling me to be a missionary nurse and I surrendered. I have a strong passion for people. I don't like seeing people hurt, in pain, suffering and I'd do almost anything to prevent that. This was the main reason for how Truth Chasers was formed. Abi & I knew each other all of our life. The humorous part was that we never got close to each other and yet we went to the same church! September of 2015 our family went to their house for dinner and Abi and I got really close. As we got to talking more we both found we had a strong desire to see souls saved and for helping fellow Christians. Like she said we did a lot of debates and missions and in the process I learned more and because of all that and her my walk with God grew even more. She is truly a great friend and I treasure her deeply. It's hard to find godly friends who are going towards the same direction. What an amazing powerful friendship match God put together!
I pray so strongly that this will minister to your heart and that you will be set a fire to serve God more. Our world needs Christians who will stand up and not be afraid to back down. We need to get back to the old paths and it is time that America turned back to God. I believe we have been given another chance, let's not waste that.
