True Conversion?

 While blog surfing a few days ago, I ran across a blogger who linked to the following article:

http://ipost.christianpost.com/news/former-victorias-secret-model-explains-why-she-suddenly-quit-industry-11306/

I couldn't tell you who that blogger was, and I've surfed quite a bit since that time, so trying to find that article back would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. That blogger voiced concerns about the validity of this woman's conversion, and I would have to admit that I agree with many of the things he (she?) mentioned as reasons to doubt this young woman. Be sure to watch the video clip. I think the interviewer asks some good questions, and the comments that she makes about being called a "fat cow" etc, are denied by those she said made the comments. I suppose it is possible the others are the ones that are less than truthful.

I'm not going to list why I don't believe her story, I just give the link so that you can judge it for yourself. If I am wrong about her, to God be the glory. If I am correct, I pray that the Lord does bring her to a point of true conversion in her life.

I will say, however, that the Bible warns about the love of mammon, and that people cannot love God and money, and that there will be many in the last days that will make merchandise of the gospel, but that we are to freely give what has been freely given to us.

I pray for our God-given discernment in these matters.

Please try to keep your comments on the topic of the post you are commenting on.

If there is a link to an article or podcast, or if there is an embedded video please view these before airing your views on the posting. If you clearly did not watch video/read link I may choose to remove your comment or leave your comment and then not respond to it ...particularly if you have a question that is already answered on link or video.

Opposing viewpoints are of course allowed here, however, I will limit such discussions to two or at most three further comments on one topic, so do try to get all your criticisms in while keeping that in mind, and don't take it personal....I just don't want to be bogged down with a constant barrage of replies that go on and on like a dog chasing it's tail in circles.
