Believe it or not, I was a dropout. Not from school—from church. After I was confirmed in a Protestant church at the age of fourteen, I was determined that church was not for me. It was not because of what I had learned about God and Christ Jesus. I liked that very much. What puzzled me was that people who called themselves followers of Christ often failed to live up to the Christian standard.

I decided to go my own way, not without God but without church. I knew I needed God always, but I felt I had no need for a church—for God was everywhere.
