    "I spent about three weeks listening to this show. Not because I liked what they were talking about but rather because it was hilarious when these over-bearing bible-bangers would just get exploded on by someone who didn't want to hear what they had to say. At some point during this I was laughing at them and I remember saying through laughter, 'God, if this garbage is real, you need to open my eyes. This seems like a scam to me.' Sometime during the third week, they found a guy that was exceedingly convicted by the walk through of the Ten Commandments. The guy never hesitated when he was asked, 'If you were to stand before God in judgment do you think you'd go to Heaven or Hell?' The guy replied, 'Hell.' He had what I remember being a very somber voice. When asked if that concerned him, he simply replied, 'Yes.' ... This day it wasn't funny. This day I sat there thinking, 'This guy is me.' As I heard Ray explain the Good News to the gentleman on the air, I fell apart. I started to cry like a baby. I could hardly see the road as I worked the semi into the wayside rest. I stopped, pulled the breaks on, went back into the sleeper, hit my knees and I've never looked back. I spent almost two hours repenting and praying for forgiveness. I spent the rest of the day listening to Christian radio and talking to God."

    Death at 96
    Sadly, Jack Lalanne died recently. He was the father of the fitness craze. His healthy living and fitness may have helped him live until he was 96. Then again, one of my neighbors loved junk food, didn't work out, and made it to 100 years. So, I ride a bike to work each day, and down a daily half a glass of carrot juice, and that's all I'm doing to try and extend my life. This is because I took to heart 1 Timothy 4:8, and the bumper sticker that said, "Eat Right, Exercise, Die Anyway." Jack Lalanne worked out for two hours a day, even into his 90's. He once boldly said, "Billy Graham's for the hereafter. I'm for here now." Not any more.

    1 Timothy 4:8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
