A sudden, 180 degree turn from wickedness. My own turn from sin was likewise, 180 degrees and it happened in about 30 seconds. It was permanent, and I have never looked back, nor have I “slipped up” and resumed my former wicked life, not even for one single hour for nearly 30 years.
Apparently my son had a similar conversion. Not the same circumstance, but apparently the Holy Spirit simply changed him and it is time for Lukas to begin the race. He is so in tune that I am considering putting him on here with his own podcasts and posts if he wants to do it.
