sounds more like a guy who goes along with the strongest in a crowd

by the story's own details, he doesn't sound like he was ever an atheist

let's pretend that the holy gail of genuine athiest converted to theist was true

that's still only one to several million who've gone from theist to atheist and stayed that way

The many different varieties of Baptists are not true Christians.

A true Christian does not fight with anyone, or go to war or train to kill anyone. Romans 12:17-20

A true Christian does love his fellowman and is not prejudiced against anyone. Matthew 22:39

A true Christian does not teach burning fire punishment from Jehovah, the God of love. John 3:16

A true Christian is willing to die, rather than disobey God's word, such as abstain from blood. Genesis 9:5

I love when the fundies judge each other.
By the way, there are alot of people who claim that a true christian wouldn't predict the end, or that a true christian would not rewrite the Bible to suit their needs.

In order for you to be believed, prove what you post, don't make false accusations like false prophets.

Jehovah's witnesses just repeat what the Bible says, the end is very near now, and unless you are ready for it, you will not survive it.

Indeed they do-- and not just their victimized kids, either-- they routinely commit suicide by refusing modern science-based medical treatment for easily fixed conditions.

Idiots, all.
