A psychotic atheist becomes a Christian.

I want you to watch this video. This guy has an amazing story to tell. After you watch it, ask yourself how anyone but God could make such a drastic change in someones life.

This is an example of the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. Modern medicine, and all the shrinks could not help this man. His only salvation was through Jesus Christ.

I stopped watching as soon as he said ants run the world. At least you got one thing right, he is psychotic.

You are are a willfully ignorant moron, or you would realize that's what he USED to think. He knows better now, thanks to Jesus.

That was one of the most powerful testimonies of the redemtive power of the Christian narrative that I have ever had the pleasure of hearing.I understand why he believes that these kind of awsome transformations only come through belief in these stories, and though I surely wouldn't want to disrupt anyones journey toward decency, sanity, and sincere concern for the well-being of anyone, I can personally testify that transformation similar to what he described can happen without buying in to that mythos.

without buying in to that mythos.

the only thing you prove with this is your unintelligence.

have you searched anything to prove the bible especially new testament is a myth?

And anything i don't mean the bullshit the illiterate richard dawkins spews about christianity.

Archaelogical and historical facts outside the bible.

Personal introspection in prison, and just generally not wanting to look back at the end of my life ashamed of the person I was.

I won't lose any sleep if you (or people on the internet) think of me as unintelligent. I am not ashamed of who I am despite your efforts

I start with the assumption that historical accounts in general are subject to human error, but historical veracity isnt necessary for stories to inspire people. Please understand by "mythos" I dont mean "false story".

I think the power of belief is capable of transforming anyone if they truly embrace it but I wouldn't reduce what transformed this man to what he believes to be a better life as "buying in to that mythos" simply because you don't believe in it. The main point you made was very clear and nice though. As long as someone is a decent person and can see past themselves to care for others, it doesn't really matter what they need or want to believe in.

You have not changed, you still try to justify yourself, you still try to convince yourself and others that you do not deserve dying and you till try to convince yourself that you are exonerated in death. You are dying for your own sins and if you are not saved by God the Savior you will have his caked blood under your feet and get what you deserve, eternal dying which is all you have and it's leading you to Hell where you won't be wearing that stupid smirk on your face.

You are the same sinner you always were, you are full of yourself and that is nothing but dying.

Maybe I should hide my face and name in shame and fear like you? Or try badmouthing people for Christ? We could start a group called "Cowards for Christ" lol

You do deserve some credit, and I should have said it first thing when I started responding to you here....you are one of the very few people on this site who actually had the mental capacity to watch the video. It's a shame most people can't bear to watch it due to the fact that they know it is going to point to God the Savior Jesus Christ. The narrative and the cinematography in the video are both superb; yet most people are so closed minded they can't bear to listen to it.

You missed the main point of the video, but that is okay...you're not ready for it and maybe never will be.

But I can say this...anybody who can watch and listen to this video must have some brains. The explanation of experienced philosophic practice and inquiry is above most of the mental midgets here.

I watched the subject video of this debate two or three times because I enjoy the flow of the narrative and the eloquent philosophical constructs......so just for you, here is another one you will probably enjoy, which I also have watched maybe three times and will watch it again. There are not many people who can introduce me to new lines of philosophy but this guy is one of them.

(YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS ON YOUTUBE IF YOU WANT FULL SCREEN)

Mint Tea is literally a friend of witches and believes that Jesus never rose from the dead and is not God incarnate. She seems to think she is a Christian while she rejects Christ the Messiah, she thinks she is good enough to deserve "afterlife" outside of Hell and cant' see past the fact that she does not deserve life at all and deserves nothing but dying and dying is all the witch has.

She is extremely witchy and will pull you down into a useless mud wrestling match if you try to reason with her.

I posted this video before, watched it two or three times myself...excellent cinematography and excellent narrative of experience and philosophy and a fine presentation of how the gospel changes hearts, minds, and lives by giving a new life to an old sinner....that is the life of Christ being made manifest in the mortal flesh of those who believe on Him.
