Identified In Christ: Christian Morano



“Jesus held my hand and led me on a journey of healing and deliverance, bringing deep wounds and hidden darkness to the surface.”

My name is Christian Morano. I am Italian by birth and moved to London a few years ago. I grew up in a dysfunctional family where I felt controlled and abused by my mother. On the other hand, I had no emotional connection with my father.

In my early years, I started to experience same-sex attraction. I felt confused about my identity and this damaged my self-esteem. I hid this from my family because I felt ashamed and afraid of being rejected. Throughout my life, I was very sexually active. I fell in love with several guys, and I found myself addicted to pornography. I used to think that I was born gay. In reality, I was looking for real love, acceptance, and deep male connection; not for sex.



At the age of 18, I left home and got into drugs, clubbing, and more sex. A few months down the line, I was left disappointed and empty, feeling mentally and physically sick. I returned home and ended up joining a new age group. It was a mixture of new age and Catholic Christian teaching, resulting in me becoming a religious Christian.

I got so involved and excited that after one year, I started a five-year vocational journey in a Franciscan monastery where I made temporary vows of chastity, obedience, and poverty. In my fourth year in the monastery, I attended a charismatic conference where a preacher asked God to wash everyone with the blood of Jesus.

“Jesus held my hand and led me on a journey of healing and deliverance, bringing deep wounds and hidden darkness to the surface.”

Powerful healing broke out. I felt a vortex in my body, and I saw a huge demon in the spirit. I became more and more sensitive to the spirit realm. It is from that moment that I was attuned to the power of God in my mind and body. Jesus held my hand and led me on a journey of healing and deliverance, bringing deep wounds and hidden darkness to the surface.

"For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God"

Colossians 3:3

____________


One year after, I left the monastery. I had been feeling like I was part of a religious system, and it didn’t make sense for me to stay on. Jesus is alive. He wants to have a relationship with you. It’s a relationship over religion.


“ I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Galatians 2:20

____________

Through Jesus, I found my true identity as a son of God. I found my purpose and my destiny. Most of all, I found real love in a real friend. His love transformed my life and now I am a new creation in Him.

DAVILANDA

Romans 10:9-10
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

CALL TO SALVATION.
