I saw this on the news the other day, how liberal Kirsten Powers came to a living vibrant relationship with Jesus.
Personally, I was shocked and very much stoked in watching the interview. I always liked her and thought she was pretty objective with her liberal viewpoint, which I appreciated. There are a lot of liberals, like the ones on MSNBC that are out there on cloud nine drinking the “cool-aide” and there are also conservatives that need to take a chill pill too!
Anyway, the following is a paragraph taken from Christianity Today:
Then he said the magic words for a liberal: “Do you think you could keep an open mind about it?” Well, of course. “I’m very open-minded!” Even though I wasn’t at all. I derided Christians as anti-intellectual bigots who were too weak to face the reality that there is no rhyme or reason to the world. I had found this man’s church attendance an oddity to overlook, not a point in his favor.
As he talked, I grew conflicted. On the one hand, I was creeped out. On the other hand, I had enormous respect for him. He is smart, educated, and intellectually curious. I remember thinking, What if this is true, and I’m not even willing to consider it?
The interview I saw was on Fox News and I found this article of her sharing her journey from Atheist to following Jesus. It’s worth a read and very inspiring. Here is the opening lines of the article:
Just seven years ago, if someone had told me that I’d be writing for Christianity Today magazine about how I came to believe in God, I would have laughed out loud. If there was one thing in which I was completely secure, it was that I would never adhere to any religion—especially to evangelical Christianity, which I held in particular contempt.
