    Christians are called to give their testimony such as this.

    YouTube : testimony

    How can people change like this on their own?

    Maybe he was unsettled by problems he had embracing life as it is and by his own mortality. Maybe he gradually realized that the idea of being immortal gave him both a sort of psychological manket and a whole load of sanctimonious dogma he could regurgitate. Maybe he realized doing so would give him a sense of importance and purpose. Who helped him recast himself like this, I don't know. His spouse? His friends? Somebody he saw in a youtube video?

    Perhaps you should watch it all before commenting.

    In what way is anyone "crazy" with regard to the youtube clip you posted?

    I have known countless people who have found religion, lost religion, changed religion, never had any religion, and so on. They all have their stories. If there is something you think is out of the ordinary in your youtube clip, just say what it is, or perhaps mention where the unusual or striking part of the "testimony" is so that it can be commented on if necessary.

    I thought it extraordinary because of the apparent change it had upon him. Add to the fact that his delusional paranoia seemed to vanish as well which is somewhat of a miracle.

    You don't think conditions like "delusional paranoia" are treatable?

    I've come across all kinds of people who have experienced change in their lives and in themselves, with or without - or even sometimes despite - their religious beliefs. You must have come across "extraordinary" changes in people that had nothing to do with religion too, right?

    According to his story he didn't change "on his own".

    1) He was (is?) mentally unstable.

    2) He was greatly influenced by a Christian called "Randy".

    Why you lie so much, Whodey? Is it habit?

    I don't recall him getting any treatment FMF, nor have I seen any mentally ill people ever be free of treatment to appear better.
