Over the years I've always
found it to be a difficult task (in a sense) to share my faith and my
testimony with a "hostile to Jesus Christ" and a "skeptical to whatever
David Berkowitz has to say" media.
My fellow Christians probably have no idea what it's like
trying to talk about God and His goodness before an audience of people who, behind their smiles and nods, hold me in contempt
because of my criminal past, who see me through the eyes of both morbid curiosity and disgust.
I can take comfort, however, in knowing that my Lord (who
was without sin and who did no wrong, ever) had to look into those same kinds of faces, and see the same hostile, skeptical
and despising looks.
It is one thing to share a "testimony" inside of a church
where, obviously, a majority of the people are happy and eager to hear it. They may even give many hearty "Amens" in
But it's quite another thing to have to tell the story of
salvation and deliverance before a group of people who shake their heads in disbelief and who, in their minds, doubt
everything I say.
