I am so excited that I have written my first book! It's called, "PUT YOUR HANDS UP! AN ARREST WARRANT FROM GOD". It's my personal testimony about how I went from being an atheist cop to a Christian cop. The concept of the book is to show what type of environment I grew up in and how God brought me through circumstances to the point where finally someone approached me to tell me about Jesus.
We live in a world that is growing slowly away from God as the Bible had predicted My home life was void of any Godly influence especially since my father was a German atheist! But my mother was an Irish Catholic! I can't explain that one! I won't go into it here basically because I want you to buy the book! The goal was not to make money but to get my testimony out as Jesus told us to do.
God created us with the ability of free choice and along with that attribute comes the ability to be influenced either by choice or by no choice. No choice doesn't mean to be forcefully influenced but influenced in a way that you might not be aware of. Just watching TV can influence you. Years ago there was a situation called "subliminal advertising" which is now illegal where movie theatres could put one frame of a picture of a particular refreshment they were selling in one frame of the film. Your eye couldn't see it but your mind did! It would make people thirsty or hungry where they then would go out to the lobby and buy the items! It still might be used in different places today.
But the point that I'm trying to make is that we are influenced, good and bad, and that influence will eventually show up in our lives. That is what happened to me. I was influenced by my father, school, the NAVY and college to believe that there was no God. So pick up the book and try to get it to someone who does not have a relationship with Jesus. Let the book influence someone! It is sold on Amazon right now. $9.99 won't break the bank!

Sometimes in life events come our way that get us to open our eyes. These events are sometimes called "Life Altering". No one is immune to them and if you're not in one now, rest assured one will be coming your way. Jesus said that these events would come and that we must trust in him to either get us out of the event or that he would go through it with us to get us to the end. When these events come, the best case scenario for us is to gain wisdom and grow stronger for the next time.
But suppose there won't be a "next time"? What if you went to your doctor for a checkup, he takes a blood sample and then sends you home. A couple of days later you get a call from the doctor's office for you to come in to see him review your lab results. Instead of getting the general good report from him he tells you that you have a very bad situation and that you probably only have 30 days to live and there is no cure!
After being picked up off the floor from the shock of the report, you head home in despair having not exactly prepared for such a report. So now, what do you do? There are a lot of choices you can make and roads that you can go down but really then what are your priorities in the days to come? A thousand thoughts enter your mind! What about this, what about that person? Where do you begin? Then comes the reality check about God! Yep, you will be finding out the truth very shortly! Is there a "God" and if there isn't, then not too much to worry about except the people around you. BUT, if God does exist, you could be swimming in fire and pain for eternity! Maybe it's time to check your relationship with God RIGHT NOW!!!
With this totally new life direction that has been placed upon you without warning, maybe it's time also to check our your relationships with the closest people to you and make amends because holding bitterness or anger towards someone no matter what they did to you, will potentially end your butt in hell according to God and his word, the Bible. So, take some time out and think about what you would do in this situation and ask yourself maybe I should be doing this anyway! Eternity, as you know, is forever. And by the way, yes, God does exist!
