Some people believe there are people who are too far gone, too beyond help, in order to be saved.

I have to think many Christians thought that about the Apostle Paul as well.  And I’m sure many, many people thought this about a former atheist named Paul Wood.

I’ve seen people in juvenile detention centers, jails and prisons who believe they are beyond saving, but this story should encourage you that nobody is beyond God’s reach.

Paul Wood, who was serving time in prison for attempted murder when he came to Christ, wrote in the description of the video below, “Lots of people have been asking me how I became a Christian, because I usually don’t share much of my story. Here’s a video explaining why I left atheism and surrendered to Jesus as Lord and Savior.”

Amy Hall gives some background on this story at the Stand to Reason blog.
