hmmm, yeah. A touch weird to hear that distinct preacher voice speak through a secular message. I'm definitely onboard with the trend, I just hope the converts actually learn science and familiarize themselves with the intricacies of arguing against religion. Otherwise, it could come off as an individual simply jumping ship from one religion to another, and that probably won't sway his fellow "believers" that are on the fence.

Good stuff, regardless!

This guy clearly wasn't persuaded by 'learning science' though, was he.

He explained how he went through all measure - "seven different levels of pentecostalist theology" - of trying to make the preaching of hell avoidance fit his conscience, and then explained how he was left with his whole identity smashed into pieces when he found he could not find the words to comfort a dear friend after a personal tragedy. I'm very happy for him that he hasn't ended up in a psychiatric ward for years.
