There was a television show in New York City called, “The Million Dollar Movie” It aired the same movie 10 times a week at various times. A lot of the movies it showed were those giant religious movies. You know, Sparticus, The Robe, The Ten Commandments, Jesus of Nazareth.
I’m sure that I must have watched the shows at least a hundred times each. I loved them. As a typical Jew born and raised in Brooklyn New York; I could have cared less about God. To me, Jesus was this good looking man with blue eyes who did a lot of great things. It never ever meant anything to me in regular life.
To make a long story short, I moved to Jacksonville Florida to work in the television industry. A woman tried to witness to me about Jesus and realized that she was getting nowhere with me. (I’m from N.Y.C.; remember? I know everything!)
Well, she finally decided to give me a copy of, “The Late Great Planet Earth”. I read half of the book the first night, and decided that I wanted to contact Hal Lindsey and kill him. (I was under conviction!)
My friend talked me into finishing the rest of the book that night. For the first time in my life, I started to realize that there was a God. Someone knew what was going on and I wanted to meet Him. After three weeks of church going, talking with all sorts of people, and soul searching; I decided that I did not want to be like the millions of people left behind after Noah’s Ark. I wanted to be on the winning side. So I gave my life to Jesus and have never looked back.
