We question any person whom once believed in God, but now is an atheist. If something very bad should happen in Jerry DeWitt's life, our question is, would he call on God? We understand there are some backsliders whom once knew God who walked away, because they became bitter and felt God did not love them or because maybe God did not give them an answer to their problem or they did not receive a blessing they fasted and prayed for. However, to not believe in God, after serving him for so long is very scary. Then, to invite others to follow your movement as an atheist is even more scary and also dangerous, because people are souls and they have some place to go at the end of their lives. Here is another interesting question, how would Jerry DeWitt or any other former believer of Christ feel, if they should die and discover their mistake of becoming an atheists? There would be nothing they can do to save their souls, because God gave them a chance to believe. Saints, this is a very serious issue, because after the various testimonies we shared with you on our videos page that revealed people who actually been to heaven and hell, we know God is real. Although, we cannot see Him, we as true followers of Jesus Christ can feel Him and also we know He is real, because of the blessings of being alive. Our hearts cannot pump alone. We cannot wake up without God waking us up. We cannot see, hear or feel things without God. We cannot walk or move our limbs without God. We cannot use our minds and think without God. Those of us whom are born again Christians would not have never been blessed with the free gift of salvation, if Jesus Christ had not of died on the cross and took the ridicule. God gave us a choice to serve His Son, if we give up sin. Therefore, God is very real and there ought to be nothing negative that happens in our lives to change our belief in Him. Yes, we go through pain and cannot understand why there maybe some people that have more than us and many of us have faithfully been serving the Lord for a longtime, but we cannot risk losing our souls by making a choice to stop believing in Him.
In the meantime, we will pray that God gives Jerry DeWitt and others like him to turn around from atheism before it is everlasting too late. We have faith God will reveal to Him, He is real and loves him very much.
There was once a true story about an atheist whom went out camping by himself and he fell asleep out in the wilderness and he told the Lord, He said, 'God if you are real, when I wake up, if that rock is gone, I will believe in you.' When the man woke up that rock was gone. This should reveal to anyone, God exist and has always proved himself to be real. Therefore, we will have faith for Jerry DeWitt to be proven wrong and return back into the family of God.
Note: Since CNN.com did not have a video of Jerry DeWitt explaining why he is no longer a Pentecostal minister and now an atheist, we felt led by God not to post the various videos we found on You Tube.
If you need God to come into your life, we invite you to go directly to our Salvation page. God is real and proved His existence when He created each and every last one of us. When He formed the earth, He already had shown us, He is real. The sun, moon and the stars cannot hold up in the sky without the Lord who created them. Day cannot turned to night and night cannot change to daytime without God. We would not have different seasons and they cannot change without the Lord. So, we invite you to make a choice to not only believe in Him, but make a wise decision and serve Him before it is everlasting too late. If after you make a choice for Jesus to come into your life, you are going to have trials. God never said our walk as His children would be easy, but it does not mean He is not real and it does not mean He does not love you. Many times, you will go through bad situations, but they happen to make you strong and so you will have a testimony when you come out. If you want to be saved, you must visit our Salvation page and follow the steps there. God bless you dear brothers and sisters and welcome to the family of God.
Unbelieving preachers get help to 'come out' as open atheists
By Dan Merica, CNN
(CNN) – Jerry DeWitt entered the ministry when he was 17, launching a 25-year career as a Pentecostal preacher. He traveled all around his home state of Louisiana, preaching and ministering wherever he could.
All these years later, DeWitt, 42, is still on the road, and now takes his message all over the United States. But the nature of that message, along with his audience, has changed dramatically.
DeWitt is now an avowed atheist, and his audiences are made up of religious “nones,” the growing number of Americans who are atheist, agnostic, humanist or just plain disinterested in identifying with a religion. Today, DeWitt preaches a gospel of disbelief.
During his speeches, he talks about the process of leaving his...Read full article, here.
