“Saul, my brother, the Lord has sent me, Jesus who appeared to you on the way by which you came, that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”
So...you're just gliding along on your high horse on the way to Damascus looking from some Christians to persecute when BAM! Blinded by the light.
Yeah, everybody knows that Paul, when he was known as Saul before his conversion and becoming a disciple, was actually one pretty bad dude. He literally killed people for following Christ. And guess what? He went on to become not only one of the greatest proponents for Christianity EVER but he was also chosen to help write, you know, the Bible. And you thought Bruce Springsteen was a great writer. Bottom line: It's never too late to get back on your horse and ride into the sunset -- just choose the right trail.
