    This fellow was rather intellectual but ended up in prison with a Christian cell mate. Hear his experience in his own words

    Would you mind answering the question I asked you in the "Has science discovered God?" thread?

    I will have to go there to see what it was first.

    That was quite a testimony from Dave Wood, in prison and having been in mental institutions. It was a well done video, I think.

    I had already asked him there, but he didn't answer. So I figured I'd ask him here, knowing he would read it and couldn't really ignore it.

    Seems I was right.

    What's it to you, forum clown?

    Go over now and you'll see my reply.

    Hey, were you able to get through this ?

    Why I Am a Christian (David Wood, Former Atheist)

    YouTube


    Did you hear how he sought to murder his father?
    Did you hear how death did not bother him?
    What about what he said about his fasting without food to outdo his Christian cell mate ?
    Did you hear about how they put him in a cell with a camera because they thought he was trying to starve himself to death ?

    Three conclusions came to him in that state.
    Hear about those three realizations which prompted him to pray.

    " I don't know if I will believe in You tomorrow " he prayed. It was very interesting. Check it out.

    I listened to it for 11 minutes. Then I got bored.

    So we have a guy who clearly had mental issues, not being able to feel for other people. That's a known psychological disorder, I believe.

    So, being mentally unstable, he finds someone that gets into his messed up brain and convinces him of fairytales being true.

    Now he somehow attaches relevance to him having been an atheist and having killed his father.

    This kind of stuff impresses you? Somehow strenghtens your own beliefs, maybe? You're quite easily impressed, aren't you?

    So do tell, why do you not go around killing people?

    I had to cut out after a few minutes.

    Did he recover from being a sociopath?

    In my opinion the whole video is worth seeing from beginning to end.

    I think a crucial point in his experience is three realizations while he was pinning away in near starvation in an isolated monitored cell.

    At that point, not knowing how to pray, he nonetheless prayed. Basically he prayed something like "I may not believe in God tomorrow. But if you can do anything to help this sociopath right now, I'm open to change."

    I think that was the crucial moment that changed his life drastically. Everything was different in him from then. Jesus began to work Himself into his life.

    I'm sorry. I have no problem believing his account. It reminds me of my experience. I got to the place where there was no way out but UP.

    I don't know too much about Dave Wood. But he was apparently a very tough West Virginia guy who went to prison and sometime earged a Phd.

    Here he is in a public debate with a quite educated advocate of Atheism who herself was brought up in Islam but liberated herself.

    Debate: Does God Exist? (David Wood vs. Heina Dadabhoy)
    YouTube

    After hearing a couple of his videos I was surprised to hear his sociopathic backround from the trailer parks of rural West Virginia and his prison experience.

    Are you eight years old??

    Why don't you go around killing people?

    Edit: seems I should've said: "I had to cut out after 11 minutes."

    This is because stories like these strenghten your belief.

    1. Yes. Any testimony from someone with mental issues is potentially entertaining.
    Many have been abducted by aliens and had rectal probes...

    2. Are you a connoisseur of videos? I think not.

    It is not evidence of your genetic fallacy excuse not to hear him.

    If Christ could reach this man He certainly could reach your similarly sick case as well, if you had the good sense to ask God come into your heart.
