Sophia Ruffin Background
As the saying goes, when God wants you, He will get your attention and when you give Him your attention he will embrace you with his everlasting love. This is the story of Sophia Ruffin. For many years of her life, she resented the idea of God. According to her thinking at that time, there was no way God would exist in this broken world.
She was broken and angry. In her despair, she turned to lesbianism in search of love she craved for many years. She tried reliving it with other women only to be left more broken. Her redemption started when she went to a church. Now, she is a powerful preacher, author, and a wife.
Age and Family
Ruffin was born on 31 December. Her age could be 33 or 34 years old. She grew up in a broken family. Her parents divorced when she was young and her mother had tried to abort her. As she grew up, the spirit of rejection followed her.
Ruffin went through rejection multiple times. Her father was never there for her to give her the love and care she wanted. When she was 11 years old, a young man in his freshman year molested her for close to 4 years. This experience deepened her shame and rejection.
She got her first instance of love when her school teacher started appreciating how she looks, her hair, and her personality. Ruffin got obsessed with the love from her teacher. She wanted more. Gradually, she started getting attracted to girls.
Sophia knew it was wrong to love girls but her mindset changed when she met girls who publicly dated other women. They gave her confidence. She came out to her parents and friends. Soon after, Sophia started engaging in sexual behavior with multiple women and doing drugs.
Sophia Ruffin Testimony
Although she came out publicly, her Christian friends still convinced her that her behavior was considered a sin in the Bible. One time, Sophia visited a church after her friend had insisted for a long time. During the service, Sophia had an encounter with the God of the Bible.
She felt a deep love inside of her which she craved. God spoke to her, told her she loved her, and wanted to do things with her. Sophia accepted the calling of God and made Jesus the Lord and Savior of her life.
From there, Sophia became devoted to the Christian faith. The new convert struggled with temptation but the power of the Holy Spirit and the word of God helped her live the Christian life. She started preaching and telling people her testimony, which was later featured on CBN.
She led many to Jesus and helped others in moving out of the chains of attraction to members of the same sex. Her decision to go against the LGBTQ has been criticized by those who support it but she has not relented because she was once one of them.
