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.

  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!

  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).

    • 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.

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

    • 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

  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.
