From Atheist to Believer in Jesus Christ
I prepared my testimony because Jesus says if you acknowledge me before men I will acknowledge you before my father who is in heaven.
Born into an upper middle class family in the suburbs of Washington, DC, I was one of four boys, my father was an attorney, and my mother a homemaker.
From an early age, the thought of God was wiped from my mind by science school teachers and my father. We were taught that the Bible is a book of fairy tales written by fallible men over the span of hundreds of years, and that it was fraught with contradictions and untruths.
The accepted theory is that life started from a Big Bang, then over the span of billions of years, all forms of life developed, and evolved. The science of evolution supposedly proved this big bang theory and disproved the Bible, and anyone who believes the Bible, which states in Genisis 1 that God created the heavens and the earth, we were told, was a fool.
Although the Bible states “the way of man is not in himself” my earthly father taught me that man is capable of living life on his merit alone, and that faith in God was a weakness.
The plan was, rather than to seek God, just gain a good education, and focus on business and making money. I was taught that self hypnosis is the key to happiness. The moral compass I was given was appealing. Now I can be my own God, and do whatever I want as long as I don’t hurt anybody. Everything in moderation was my basic foundation for living.
As a young school child, I remember often seeking attention and disturbing class. Bored, and angry, I often rebelled against authority. I was good at sports , and for the most part, life was enjoyable, and it wasn’t until later in my teen years that I started to go off the rails.
I remember drinking a beer after a baseball game at 13 yrs of age, and I loved it! From that day forward, I began drinking as often as I could and experimenting with drugs as well. When my parents split up at around the age of 15, I moved in with my father and his young girlfriend. I was drinking beer and smoking pot every day, then dropped out of school in 10th grade, and moved out on my own right after my 17th birthday.
Renting an $80 month attic room in a group house and working for $3.30 hr as a stock boy at a shoe store, the next 10 years were a blur from drugs and alcohol, and I don’t remember much. I played guitar and sang in the bars, and changed jobs often.
My earliest thought of God came in my twenties when traveling across country and visiting my Christian uncle Keith in Oklahoma. I remember drinking a six pack of beer, then attending a bible study. My uncle and several others laid hands and prayed over me in the name of Jesus, then next day I was given a hundred dollar bill and hit the road. I was miserable and knew whatever I was doing wasn’t working and I needed help.
The memory of this event never left me, and opened the door for me to consider that maybe there is a God. However, my father and other family members considered my uncle to be crazy and ignorant, so I didn’t know what to believe. In hindsight, I know this was a pivotal moment for me, and the seed was planted, but I had no immediate transformation.
Years later, while caught up in alcohol and drug addiction, I found myself led to an AA meeting by a friend. In AA I was taught that we need a higher power to recover, and most choose to call this higher power God. In AA I saw many people getting well who had a faith in God, so gradually I started believing and praying to God. I soon met my wife, and later we had two children, and we are still married to this day!
Although I experienced some periods of sobriety and faith in God, often I still returned to drinking and my self will. It wasn’t until 1998, that I finally hit bottom, almost losing my wife, family and business. I asked God for help, entered recovery once again, and God removed my compulsion to drink alcohol and use drugs. I have never had a drink or drug since.
Many years later in 2018, a man who was like a father to me and mentor in recovery, died, and I was devastated. I had been on a low dose of an anti-depressant for a couple of years previously, and had recently stopped taking them, so I was feeling particularly raw. Desiring a deeper understanding of God, I picked up the Bible and started studying. I copied down my favorite scriptures and memorized them, and my faith and understanding grew.
Now convinced that, even though the Bible was written by men, it is the inspired Word of God, profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. The Word of God is living and powerful, sharper than a two edged sword, and able to make us wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord.
It became clear to me that I was a sinner in need of the blood of Christ, and the Holy Spirit. I broke Gods laws, but Jesus paid the fine, and if I repent and believe, I can become a new creature in Christ, and God can grant me everlasting life. I learned that Jesus is the only way, the truth and the life and nobody comes to the father except through Him.
God desires that everyman comes to the knowledge of the truth, that there is one God, and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself a ransom for all.
We are called to repent of our sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin, so I went to a local church and was baptized in the name of Jesus in 2019.
God’s Word instructs us to preach the gospel throughout the earth to every creature, and God raised us up so that He could show His power in us, and that His name be declared in all the earth.
Rather than be conformed to the world, God calls us to be transformed by the renewing of our mind, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ be brought into captivity to the of obedience Christ.
With the short time I have left on this earth, I desire to live everyday for Jesus Christ with the help of the power of the Holy Spirit.
I’ve been very blessed to have a mother that became a believer later in life who prayed for me often, and she was very instrumental in helping me come to the Lord. We have a very special relationship to this day, and enjoy encouraging each other in our daily walk with Christ.
God has also blessed me with a wonderful wife, who’s been by my side all these years, who gave me two beautiful children that I love with all my heart and soul. I am truly a very wealthy man. Praise the Lord!
During the Trump presidency my eyes were opened to the corruption of the media and evil political forces in opposition. It became apparent the television has become a propaganda disseminating mind control tool used to control us.
I watched powerful men and women caught in enormous crimes against our country get away with it. I noticed Millions of babies murdered every year for convenience in the name of ‘choice’. Men call themselves women, and women men.
Children are fed a steady diet of Disney pornography while forced to attend transgender training classes. I researched global warming and learned it was predominantly lies the government is pushing to gain control. Evil became legalized and good outlawed. The world had become totally insane.
As I studied the bible it became clear what’s going on. There’s an abundance of scripture explaining spiritual warfare and the evil prevalent in the world. Below are just a few examples.
“We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
“And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world”
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
“Because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved, and for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned.”
“Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”
“Our gospel is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”
As Trump’s re-election approached, covid was coincidentally unleashed on the world. The deeper I researched, the more it became apparent that covid was just another political tool to control people and make trillions of dollars.
By all manner of deceit, we watched the 2020 presidential election get stolen. We also witnessed CIA and covert op false flag, staged events, using crisis actors unfold, without challenge.
In very early 2021, I began wondering if there is any truth left in this world. With extra time on my hands due to the plandemic world shutdown, I stumbled on the Flat Earth concept which I thought was ridiculous. Never had any reason to question the Globe concept. It didnt make sense, but it was pushed down our throat since the age of 5, and all the smart people believed it, so it must be true.
I remember at a very young age being told how stupid flat earth believers are, and that surely a ship would fall off the edge. Of course, the image of the globe is fed to us in various media dozens of times a day which reinforces it. So I never thought about it again….. until 2021.
Googling the flat earth topic I immediately noticed that google was feeding hundreds of negative articles, and google owned youtube was doing the same. However, these articles and videos debunking flat earth were not substantive. In fact, they were mainly nasty character assassinations with no substance.
Communist style censorship was the new norm in the world and google was doing its best to hide the real flat earth information. I learned that the Flat Earth Society was even created by globers to misrepresent flat earth and deceive the public. All this effort had me wondering what they are trying so hard to hide.
I found this $5 flat earth iphone app that compiled a great deal of legitimate info about flat earth and began studying it. Right off the bat I noticed that almost everything about flat earth model made sense, but almost nothing of the globe model made sense.
I studied the geocentric and heliocentric models for 100’s of hours and everything was ringing true about flat earth and nothing was true about the globe or Nasa. Of course, the bible has 200 scriptures that support the flat, stationary earth and no scriptures that support a spinning ball earth,
My wife is looking hard to find evidence that we are living on a spinning ball!
I’ve come to believe that the grand deception of spinning ball earth (flying through infinite space), along with big bang and evolution, was created to disprove God, and usher in the era of man. This deception results in lost souls not knowing who they are, where they come from, or their purpose in life. Forces of evil can’t rule God’s creation, so they had to invent an artificial creation to remove the true God.
Govt and academia purposely deleted the biblical teachings of creation, heaven above and hell below, as well as the salvation of man through Jesus Christ, so that govt can instead lift themselves up as gods.
They taught us we are insignificant parasites descended from a primordial ooze, spinning out of control on a ball rocketing through space. But now we know better, and finally have a chance to break the chains that enslave us.
2021 is also the year of the untested, unnecessary, covid vaccine that is being pushed on the world. After researching, I realize that it may be very harmful to those who take it. The Vax wasnt made for covid, rather covid was made for the vax. I believe it’s evil, and I prefer to trust God and my immune system.
Lastly, I have come to believe that we are in the end times as referenced in the bible. I’ve recently studied secret societies such as Freemasonry, and it’s apparent that Satanism and corrupt communists have infiltrated almost all the positions of power in the world. Evil is rewarded and good is punished.
One only needs to read the agendas of the World Economic Forum, United Nations, World Health Organization to understand the evil New World Order is in full swing.
The mark of the beast will come (if the vax isnt it), the anti-christ will appear, Christian persecution will ramp up, and Jesus Christ will be returning very soon. Time is short. Get covered by the blood of Jesus Christ!
