A famous Australian politician and Australia’s second longest-serving governor-general who made no secret of his atheism has converted to Christianity.

Bill Hayden, the famous Australian atheist, recently believed in the existence of God, and has taken steps further to accept the love of Jesus Christ into his heart. He was baptized in the Catholic Church, The Australian reports.

Hayden, 85, is Australia’s former Governor-General and was a renowned atheist for all of his life. Typically, as Governor-General, one would also be appointed the Chief Scout of Australia. Hayden declined this office in 1989, declaring that he was an atheist and the Scout Promise, which says, “do my best to do my duty to my God,” was in direct conflict with his beliefs.

Now at 85 years old, this has all changed for the former politician.

In 2014, Hayden was sent to the hospital after having a stroke, and according to The Christian Post, it was this event that ultimately convinced him that God did exist. Hayden said the stroke made it evident that there is “more to life than just me.” He continued, “I had to make a dedication of myself for the good of others, before God. I felt that strongly.”

So, after years of denying God’s existence, Hayden renounced his atheism and joined the Catholic Church. Hayden said witnessing several selfless acts of compassion by Christians over his lifetime coupled with his stroke inspired his decision to come to Christ.

According to The Catholic Leader, Hayden was baptized at St. Mary’s Church near Brisbane, on Sept. 9. He said at the time, “This took too long, and now I am going to be devoted. From this day forward, I’m going to vouch for God.”

  1. Glory be God! But please do not bow down to the images carved by men that are associated with Roman Catholicism. God is a Spirit!

    • Then you should throw away pictures of family friends and loved ones. We don’t adore pictures and statues, we love and honour the Saints in Heaven, who never stopped doing God’s will, even in Heaven. They hear our prayers and intercede with God on our behalf.
      If you ask someone to pray for you and expect God to hear their prayers, then how much more will God listen to His Saints who are in Heaven. Don’t forget, Jesus is not Just a Spirit, He is also God.

          • Terrible misinterpretation of scripture. All these were old testament incidents when God was teaching his people about a powerful and forgiving God. When Jesus came and overcame death, and the Holy Spirit was sent to empower the believer, the ritual of the old book became unnecessary. We don’t practice the Hebrew dietary laws any longer, do we? Additionally, this has nothing to do with who intercesses for those of us of faith still on earth. But we know that Jesus now sits at the right hand of the Father, as our intercessor (Heb 12:2). Wonderful to have fellow believers on earth join in your prayers and petitions but I am not sure why or how dead human beings have the power to intercess or would, since they are not all knowing. Do the saints, as deceased humans, hear our prayers? Did canonizaion grant them the ability to be part God? Or do all “saints in Heaven” (sum of all the dead in Christ) have that same ability?

        • The story of the Transfiguration where Jesus appears with Moses and Elijah and they speak about the things to come. Those who have gone on before are quite alive and aware of what is happening on Earth. See also the passage in Hebrews where Paul speaks of the faithful of the past as the “Great cloud of witnesses…” watching us run the race of faith here on earth. See also the passage in Revelation where the martyrs in heaven pray for justice for their cause. See also Jesus own refutation of the Sadducees where his says that God is the God of Abrahama, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of the living…

      • Exodus 20:4-6 (KJV):
        “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

        • Phil, I thought the same verse. No saint has the ability to “hear” our prayer, no saint can be an intermediary, except for Jesus Christ, the only one worthy of hearing our prayers and making intercessory prayers for us to God. In Christ alone!

      • Jesus said I am the way not a way. So, God listen to our prayers through his Son not your saints and Mary. She’s as dead as my grandmother.Wake up and know that there is no Catholics or any other man made religions in heaven. The church was born Pentecost speaking in tongues and will be raptured Pentecost speaking in tongues.

        • Tongues are a gift of the Spirit, but not necessarily for everyone. At Pentecost believers were given the gift to talk to all of those in the crowd who spoke other languages. Read Corinthians 13

      • Then you should throw away pictures of family friends and loved ones. – Has nothing to do with bowing to idols.

        We don’t adore pictures and statues. – Yes you do.

        We love and honor the Saints in Heaven, who never stopped doing God’s will, even in Heaven. They hear our prayers and intercede with God on our behalf. – They do not need to pray in heaven. What are they going to ask for? Jesus is the only one who intercedes for us to the Father.

        If you ask someone to pray for you and expect God to hear their prayers, then how much more will God listen to His Saints who are in Heaven. – Jesus is the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father except through Him. Not the saints not any one, not even the pope, (who needs to accept Jesus Christ as Lord by the way.)

        Don’t forget, Jesus is not Just a Spirit, He is also God. – Who’s saying Jesus is just a spirit? He is pure God and pure man who’s seated at the right Hand of the Father and interceding for His people, His TRUE people.

        You need to read your bible.

      • The Bible tells us that Jesus is the only mediator between God and Man. Paul talks about the priesthood of the believer.
        We do not need priests to intercede and we have only to confess in prayer. Statues of saints are not photos of friends and family. They are artists renditions as are pictures of Jesus. I have an artist’s rendition of Jesus in the garden but that picture is simply a beautiful picture that reminds me of Jesus sacrifice, but I don’t light candles to it or pray to it.

      • There is only one mediator between us and the Father, and that is Jesus Christ. As Jesus Himself said… no one comes to the Father but me. The saints can’t hear you my friend. They are dead. Also according to the Bible. The dead know nothing. They will be resurrected by Jesus at the second coming.

      • CuriousI don’t ever remember reading anywhere in the Bible that says the people that go to heaven before us are praying to GOD FOR US. Where inscripture does it say that?

    • These images according to Catholic teaching are no more than images to remind us of whom they represent. We do not bow to adore statues or pay homage to any man made object except for the consecrated bread and wine and real transubstantiation into the body and blood of Christ. Priests were handed down and given this power beginning with our first Christ anointed one, Peter, our first Pope. This power was given to Christ’s apostles the time of the Last Supper. “This IS may body. This IS my blood . . ..”

      Many miracles have happened over the ages which came to validate ever more this actual and real transubstantiation. The miracle of Lanciano is one validated incident. http://www.therealpresence.org/eucharst/mir/lanciano.html

      • Sorry Mary, as a former Catholic and altar boy I have to disagree with you. Whenever there is a debate there needs to be facts. What you have said is what many of us has learned as children however we were wrong. The Bible says to believe and then be baptized and it is not something for babies. Babies go to heaven. Baptism is an outward sign of an inward experience. Babies don’t have that. That is one discrepancy. Another is Mary worship. Mary is referred to in the Bible only a few times and each time it is as a servant and never to be worshipped. The Catholic Church has the same setup as they did when the Pagans overwhelmed the Church during King Constantine’s reign. Believe the Bible. It is the word of God.

        • You truly do not understand the Catholic faith. Many people have been raised Catholic, but they never bothered to find out what the church teaches. Or they joined a ‘fun’ church where they are lied to about the Catholic faith and because they don’t know anything to begin with they swallow it hook line and sinker. For hundreds of years people have argued about how the Bible is translated. Why are there so many Protestant churches then? I suggest you check this out. https://chnetwork.org/story/crossing-tiber-conversion-story-steve-ray/
          I also think instead of trolling hate and untruths, go save those who are really not saved by our lord Jesus Christ.

          • It is high time that the catholic leadership should explain to the followers what their faith means supported by facts from the scripture otherwise they will continue to keep ignorant people in the name of followers who do things because a priest has said. One has to understand at personal level the meaning of Christianity. I grew up there until I discovered for myself what it means to be Christian. Be a christian, do not be a catholic or seventh day or joyce mier ministries etc . Be a Christian.

          • The only way to truly understand something is to also study its critics. This includes Christianity and Catholicism. While that is not something recommended by priests, I suggest you start with a book that is an easy read “Babylon Mystery Religion: Ancient and Modern” (by Ralph Woodrow). It has been around for decades and will tell you more about the origins of your religion than you have ever been told. It regularly references a source with which you will easily agree: The Catholic Encyclopedia. You owe it to your faith walk to read this book. You want to know why you vernerate Mary? This book tells you this and much, much more.

        • Dear Rev,
          I much appreciate your explanation and I didn’t read “hatefulness, etc” as others have accused you. I was raised in the Baptist denomination, and I often wondered about Catholic worship of Mary and other traditions. Again I appreciate your explanation. I am sure that each denomination has in some way misinterpreted some of the scripture and one day we will find out. I have been saved by my Lord and baptized. My relationship with the Lord is between He and I and I am not concerned about all the rules of every denomination. Fact is I am a sinner, as we all are, and all I can do is ask for forgiveness for my failures. Even in the same church, there are various of the same scripture, so I just trust my own heart and relationship with the Lord, hoping that I’ll be forgiven where I have misunderstood.

    • You are very ignorant of Catholicism. You do realize that even Christ had cheribs carved into the Ark of the Covenant in Exodus. You are suppose to be sola scriptura and you don’t even know that. LOL

      • You are all missing the point. Take your theological discussions elsewhere. This news is ocassion to celebrate, not criticize.

        • Yes!!!! His testimony is that he has accepted Christ. Every Protestant I know says that is the requirement for salvation. All this kind of arguments about non-essentials is one of the things that keep sinners from trusting Christ – they can’t see unity among Christians. Titus 3:9 also 2 Tim. 2:23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.

          • There is unity among Christians (Catholics), the disunity among protestants proves they are not Christian (Catholic).

  2. I would like to read your article, but it’s impossible to do so on a smartphone, with such invasive ads. The X is too small, so I can’t even push on it to close the ad. Even typing this comment is no easy feat, since half the text has become hidden behind the ad. So, I hope I’m not making any typos (thanks autocorrect).

    • I agree. Google Ads took 3/4 of the screen and required multiple clicks to get rid of them. Their smothering presence defeats the purpose of the site to display its message.

    • Unfortunately in all denominations there are people who think they are Christians, including leadership, just because they’ve heard of Jesus, go to church, and/or do good works. Concurrently, even in the most apostate churches, there are believers, albeit maybe only a remnant, but they exist….we know this because in Revelation, whether commending or condemning each one of the seven churches, Christ reveals there are believers in each. Let’s pray Hayden is born again.

      • Yes I agree!! Too many will say Lord Lord and He will say depart I never knew you !! We must be born again…repentance is just the beginning ..baptised in water then you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost as you wait in prayer ..you will speak in new tongues ..

        • He could be born again but he would not be a true Catholic. Catholic dogma says it is sin ti believe in faith alone and the punishment is excommunication.

    • I’m protestant but I think it’s against God’s intentions for any of us to criticize any other Christian religion or teachings.

      • Actually my friend that is not correct. Take a look at Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. (KJV) Actually God has a lot to say about other religions, or doctrines that don’t follow His word.
        Robert

      • Dick, Are you born again? Most saved people would not refer to themselves as protestant. Also they would not refer to non-Christian Churches as in the faith.

        • Rev are you an idiot. Yes i know you are ordained in some fashion belonging to sone denomibnation but give it a break alter boy/man. Your denomination has nothing on any other period. The denominational demon directed hatered of one another that you religious pukes put out is nauseating to say the lest. No denomination will reside in heaven, no demonic collabaration to disrupt the spiritual church of believers will survive the divine judgment. By the way JJ Wilson, many people would say I am protestant in discussions with a social media that is covering a conversion to a Catholicb elief system. Stop being a fraud about your own denominational biased beliefs. I am sure you have heard or read about the Apostle Paul, beliveing and living the Word is far differant from swalowing Christian denominational Kool Aide. Remember if you can Rev the Apostle wrote : if you belive in your heart the Jesus Died for your sins, rose again, and confess the same with your mouth you will be saved”. That Catholic, protestant, Pentecostal denominational demonic church speak about this denomination is the only one because we have….. The Catholic Church, the Roman Road, Speaking in tongues, less pictures, less crosses, more “spirit, is just this, Spiritual pride over self identity with the “saving denominational preaching to their own choirs garbage” God is love and a spirit, not ever a denomination, God has allowed us pin headed christians to make denominations se we can gather together with like minded people but we use it very similar as the old nation of Israel did as a holier than thou, only we are the real chosen and no one else identify. Such labored and destructive vomit. Then we allow our own “Christian Teaching” to give us the right to hate on each other. Praying for you and hoping you have a truely blessed day in the love of Christ, our Lord and Savior. All praise be to the one God, creator and lover of all. Let us be mindful that our God does not call us to hate one another. May our Brother Bill Hayden find love and support instead of condemnation, as he is drwan closer to our God. May his profession in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, for some of you that’s also a Catholic thing, and may your faith and devoution in the things of God grow daily. May those who seek the Christ raise you up Bill, to the God of Abraham, Jacob, and Issac, and may your Holy Spirit bring you to our hearts and minds to pray for you in love. May we lay aside anger, malice, and discord and pray that the divine love that gave us Christ give Bill Hayden eternal Life in Jesus the Christ.

          • “Rev, you are an idiot”…followed by a long page of blather about love! You RC and Mormon cultists really are a hoot.

      • I’m protestant but I think it’s against God’s intentions for any of us to criticize any other Christian religion or teachings.

        Jesus criticized other religion. What kind of protestant are you?

    • I agree with you 100% the Catholic religion is not Christian The teachings of the Catholic religion are not what Christ taught There may be good people that will see God that are Catholic though but I don’
      t think the leaders will even come close to seeing God except for judgement

    • Job Titus,
      If you check, you’ll find that the Catholic Church can right state that She has a continuous and unbroken like of succession of Authority from Christ to
      St. Peter, St. Linus down to the present Pope, which is historical fact. No other “christian” denomination can come even close to claiming the same.Why? Because each denominations not have Christ as its Author, but rather a person who decided to start a new sect. For example, Martin Luther, who was an Augustinian monk who left the Church and became the father of Protestantism of which all false Christian sect that have branched off from. Do some study before you criticise

      • You’re partly right, you’re describing the harlot and her daughters.

        “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:”

        “And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.”

        “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

        “How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.”

        “These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.”

        Jesus said that the road is narrow and FEW will find it. The Church(as the Bible teaches) are the believers in Jesus Christ, not any building, or human organization.

        May God bless you to see the truth!

      • You sound so positive. Prove it. You just have Catholic talking points. What about the Poes that were thrown out or when they had two popes fighting for the throne. Which one of those were part of the sucession?

      • Martin Luther left the catholic church because he found out about the false teachings that the Catholic Leaders are teaching their parishioners. It’s a Historical Fact. You study your church history. The catholic church’s teaching is way too far off than what the apostle Peter originally set out to teach. Read your bible!

      • Jihad
        Do you think that Peter ever thought of himself as the “pope” of the Catholic church? I hardly think so. That was created as mortals were making up catholic doctrine centuries later. Yes, he was certainly a leader but the rituals and reverancy of the papacy came much later, and often as a result of very evil and power/money hungry “popes”. BTW, the popes were also sometimes the king during certain periods of history, or appointed by the king to further his hunger for acqquiring more land and monies. If you read carefully, it is not a pretty history.

      • Oh you are so wrong. Christ himself through Paul said that his body consist of many parts one is a foot one is a leg etc… The way you test to see if The particular choice is do they agree with the Holy Bible. 1 do they believe Jesus is God. 2 do they believe Christ died for us. 3 do they believe Jesus rose from the grave on the third day. Catholics believe the main tenants of the bible thereby they are Christians. Do I believe that the Catholic church can say that they were established with Peter or even that they can provide a linage to the Catholic church the answer is no. In fact I don’t believe Peter ever had Children. Also according to Paul the name of the first church was called The Way, Read acts,

    • There is no salvation outside of the One and ONLY Christian Holy Catholic Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ. If you deny the Church you deny Christ and God the Father who sent Him Luke 10:16. If you refuse to listen to the Church you are the same as the heathen and pagan publican Matthew 18:17. You are either with Christ or against Him, and if you gather not with Him you are scattered Matthew 12:30. Anti-Catholic protestant heretics of the occult are certainly scattered, while the Holy Catholic Church of Jesus Christ remains One Body of Christ, as the Father and Christ are One. The Catholic Church is the household of God, and the pillar and foundation of the truth 1 Timothy 3:15.

  3. I have known Priests and Nuns of the Roman faith who were truly Christian in ever since of the word in faith and New Testament theology and I have known ThD’s and Pastors in the Protestant Churches that were not. The only security that I know is found through immersion in the New Testament for God’s foundations of Truth. Then good traditions may be added that support GOD’s Truth. No problem at all with valid traditions and they can be helpful. Jesus prayed for Christian UNITY in John 17:20-26 may it happen soon so we can all go home. Bill Hayden has taken the first steps in the right direction. Add him to your prayer list that he will grow up quickly at 85. I am 86 and it is difficult to make a new level road out of old hardened ruts. Hope Bill reads this, Be Blessed in your day, Bill. Love in Jesus. There is but one Church of Christ Jesus and all who Love and Obey HIM are members.

    • Wise words Ken Smith. I believe the Body should be trying to unify- to be in One Holy Spirit, One accord. And PRAISE ADONAI Hayden has found the One True Living God- YESHUA/JESUS! Scripture says the Angel are Rejoicing- Amen!

    • I hope you are saved but what you say makes no sense. Are their Christians in the Mormons or Jehovah witness’? They claim to be Christian. Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life and NONE goes to the Father except by me. Catholics try to go through Mary and Saints-

    • I’m sorry, but the Christ that the catholic is presenting is not the same as the Christ that the apostles Paul and Peter presented in the bible. There is only One Way, One Truth, One Life. There were other groups of people in that new testament that claimed they know Christ and do what the real Christians were doing. Praying, casting out demons, etc.. but Jesus said to them I don’t know you!

  4. This post is awesome! Praise be to God that he became Christian and joined the Catholic Church; what a reality to celebrate!

  5. I don’t believe a word of it. Show me a video with him stating all that guff to a camera. Until then, I will just add it to my collection of lies from the RC Church.

      • Thanks, I just saw it. How sad that a man who did so much for this country ended up by following a book that supports slavery, genocide, child murder, child rape, just so he could ‘feel good.’ So sad.

        • Isaiah 5:20 King James Version (KJV)
          20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

          2 Timothy 3:1-5 ESV
          But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

        • 2 Timothy 4:3 ESV
          For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,

          John 8:44 ESV
          You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

      • Thanks for sharing that. He never once acknowledge asking Jesus to come into his life and save him. Only that he “felt good”

  6. A life time of damages, destruction, hate, vilification. God may forgive him, but I’m not that perfect, I refuse to forgive. May he rot in Hell!

  7. Praise God he converted and followed our Lord and savior.

    I was disappointed though that Google’s ad would not go away even after many click!!!😒

  8. Near death experiences often have that effect on hard cases as do severe crises such as prison terms, divorces, loss of a loved one, reversals of fortune. I suspect many more repent on their death beds and at the moment the ‘silver cord’ is severed.

  9. My mother was a staunch Atheist. She married my Catholic father and at that time she had to promise to raise us kids in the Catholic faith. I was the eldest of 3 at the time and remember well my mother’s personality. My father’s sister once referred to her as a cheap foul mouth hussey. I remember well.
    At age four I would beg my mother to let me go to Sunday school with the rest of the kids in our neighborhood. Buses used to drive all over neighborhoods in the city of San Diego picking up children on Sundays for various christian denominations.
    Finally, begging her once again my mother decided she’d attend a Sunday mass to find out what it was all about. The priest during the sermon of the mass spoke of a type of pray, “Contemplative Prayer,” prayer that was even hard for priests and nuns.
    At the end of mass she (mother) said to herself, “I can do this!” When she got home she proceeded to lie in bed and still herself while focusing on Christ.
    Suddenly, Christ appeared to her. She describe Him wearing a white gown with a red sash about his waist. She said he had something around his head and later came to realize it was His crown of thorns. Hundreds of people were following behind in lines. She said she couldn’t see their faces as their heads were bowed down. All was as if on a cloud. She suddenly jumped out of bed thinking she was dead. Two months later she said Jesus showed her His love.
    I remember as if it were yesterday her great change. All the makeup came off her face. Not one curse word was ever to be heard, and she attended daily mass everyday of her life until on her death bed. Naturally, all six of us children sent to Parochial school.
    Knowing well my mother’s stubbornness, I’m convinced she was one who had to see in order to believe.

    • That’s an amazing testimony Mary Olkowski. Thank God for the salvation we have in Christ Jesus. Thank God that your mum received this salvation too.

  10. If you believe in any created thing above our creator, that thing becomes an idol that you are worshiping. Let’s take note

  11. Catholic Salvation vs Christian Salvation

    Catholics endeavor to receive personal salvation comes by being water baptized as a infant. The RCC teaches if not baptized as an infant and the baby dies that salvation can not be guaranteed.

    The the Catholic maintains his salvation throughout their live by partaking of the sacrements of the RRC church.

    ‘The Bible’ teaches a person is saved when they reach the age of reason and place faith in Jesus, faith he shed his blood, died on a cross to pay their sin debt in full and 3 days later he rose from the dead to impart the gift of eternal life to all who will believe. Supporting scriptures: Eph.1.7, Rom.1.16, 1Cor.15.1-4, 1 Thess.4.14, Eph.1.13.

    *Note: *BELIEVETH: Greek: Pisteuo: The Greek word “pisteuo” [believe] is an “action verb. Believe /Faith is God’s *sole requirement* given for us to be justified.

    • James, what is sad is that you are merely picking out bits and pieces to argue that your church and beliefs are the right ones. Everything about Catholicism is rooted in Christ’s words and teachings and the Bible. Everyone can site scripture to support what they believe, they can also use it to spread untruths and hate. Time is better spent on saving those who really need to be saved. I am Catholic, I do not worship Idols and The lord Jesus Christ is my savior.

  12. The Apostle Paul reminds us in Ephesians: MAINTAIN THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT …UNTIL YOU ATTAIN THE UNITY OF THE FAITH..
    We are all created different and come from different cultures and backgrounds. To attain unity of the faith will take more than a life time – when we are perfected. BUT we can now have and maintain the UNITY OF THE SPIRIT. it is the Spirit who testifies to our spirit that we are the children of God. All else is external.

  13. It is absolutely disappointing, but not surprising, that so called Christians fill this feed questioning his genuineness- which should be left to God; and questioning his choice of religion instead of being grateful that something in Catholicism drew him to God. As things in other churches have with other people. Reminds me of the Pharisees which Jesus chastised as pretentious and empty of the Spirit. Yet! Y’all here claiming to be filled. Pray for the man’s journey, that’s the Christian thing to do

  14. Well, I think the most important thing is not which Church/religion he joins, but if he truly received Christ Jesus as his Lord and Saviour, if indeed he has put his faith in Jesus Christ. Even if he serves a shrine and his faith is sincerely in Christ Jesus, he is still saved. Besides, Christianity on it’s own is not a religion, but the life of God in man. Christianity is a life which we receive from Christ Jesus and the forgiveness of sin which we have through Him. It’s about relationship with a person, the man Jesus; and we preach Him alone, not that men will join the ‘religion’ of Christianity, but that they would believe in Him and receive salvation from their sin; that men would draw their living from Him.
    Why would Jesus Christ come on earth, spend 33years, give His Life on the cross just to give to the world one more religion? No, He didn’t do that, He never would have done it either.
    While we may do all the religious activities: singing, dancing, praying, etc., we should always remember that Christianity on its own, is not a religion, however good a religion people say it is.
    It is Christ in you; It is Christ alive in you, It is Divinity at work in humanity.

  15. Just so y’all know, this article was shared in an atheist group with several hundred Australians, and so far all anyone knows of this guy was that he was a former politician. His Wikipedia page doesn’t even mention atheism, just a single line about how he was baptized last year. But please, do continue in naming random politicians and minor celebrities as “famous atheists” while y’all argue over the merits of Catholicism and Protestantism! 😂😂😂

    • How did you come by this conclusion “random politicians and minor celebrities”,
      Bill Hayden served as the 21st Governor-General of Australia, in office from 1989 to 1996. He had earlier been leader of the Labor Party from 1977 to 1983, as well as serving as a cabinet minister in the Whitlam and Hawke Governments, He was the Chancellor of the Order of Australia and its Principal Companion (AC), is that who you call minor politician?

  16. Catholic or Pentecostal. If they are not against us they are for us. Let the weed grow together with the plants. God moves in mysterious ways

  17. This man was brought to Christianity by God himself why he was on bed in the hospital, it is not right to sit by and judge him for what any of us think is not right.

    • I do not see any hatred here, just stating the facts (what the Bible teaches). If you read the 4 gospels you will see Jesus hated (yes hated) religion. Catholicism is a religion. I was raised Catholic even though my parents went to church once in a while but never spoke about Jesus or read the Bible. I went to Catholic school for 12 years. Lots of abuse (hate towards defensless children); I remember once during religion class the nun said “as long as a person is sincere in what they believe, they will go to heaven. I was not comfortable hearing her say that. Anyway, I am sure the Holy Spirit was drawing me to Him especially knowing I was going to be HIS someday. Praise God!!!!!…… I found out it is all about Jesus Christ,,,,not the Pope (who by the way is just a figure in the CC and whom I would never follow because he is a sinner like the rest of us and need of a Savior ….like the rest of us….. I am born again according to scripture (Jesus speaking to Nicodemus, a Pharisee as stated in the gospel of John). We are to FOLLOW, honor, glorify and obey Jesus, NOT Mary, the pope, religious rules, traditions. And by the way, “saints” means “set apart”. We that believe in the saving work of Jesus Christ who paid in FULL the penalty of our sins are “saints” who are “set apart” (from non-believers). Paul mentions “saints” many times in the New Testament. That’s another Catholic teaching that is totally out of whack. I could write 2 pages on that (look up someone becomes a “saint” according to the Catholic Church. If you think what I am saying is hatred in the post, you have the wrong concept. Look up the word “hate”. People that speak against immorality, abortion (or any type of disobedience/against God’s laws/standards is not hate. We are only expresses our factual viewpoint. We as Christians are to be love always and pray for those to know God’s truth and accept Jesus in order to be made right with God (saints). My heart breaks for any person who is deceived who “THINK” they are right with God and are following a different Jesus. I am not referring to this post / man in the video. Only God knows His heart and what he truly accepts and believes. There are people in non-denominations that call themselves Christians who may also be deceiving themselves. Only God can judge. He is the one who separates the wheat from the chaff as said in one of the gospels (can’t remember which one/s) but I KNOW Jesus” words to his disciples (followers). I know this is long but I pray whoever reads this will look to Jesus and not man or a religion. They don’t save…..Jesus does!! AND as far as works as taught in thousands of religions,,,they are like filthy rags…and how good is good enough anyways. And who are we comparing ourselves to? There is only one to compare ourselves and that is Jesus/God who is perfect. He is our standard. Thank God because we are not perfect, He MADE a way for us to be as white as snow when God looks at us and receives us into a perfect Eternity that has not one blemish. (God cannot look upon even one sin). I pray constantly for those who truly need to KNOW the real Jesus of the Bible, not rules, regulations and traditions. And by the way, that piece of bread that is lifted in the air is NOT the body and blood of Christ. He died ONCE ….It was not a down payment that needs to be “sacrificed” again by “accepting the “holy” Eucharist. Regarding Catholics or any denominations or non-denominations,,,,,,,God knows the heart and who they (not what) they truly worship.

  18. I am saved by Grace and I love the Lord so much. None can be perfect except our Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you JESUS!!!
