- Hello, my name is Scott Yannitell and I am a man in my mid 30s. I'm from a town in central Ohio called Marion. I've lived in Ohio my entire life. I was raised as a christian but fell away from the faith for about 17 years. I recently re pledged my life to our risen Lord Jesus Christ this year and I've been growing in faith every day.
Since my great fall in 2006 (not a physical fall but spiritual) I've said many hateful and hurtful things against Christians. After my Dad died in 2009 I began to search for answers on how the world really works. I learned about the history of finance in this country and the shocking truths about 9/11. I came to the realization that this world is not going to end up like a startrek like utopia but was destined for complete ruin in every metric. I was a deist at the time and then, when the lack of a proof in it, of justice for those who are apparently getting away with all this scot free (no pun intended) all the way to their graves I fell away further into athiesim. Then it dawned on me that man is doomed unless something beyond our visible nature came to do something about it. I decided to take a pilgrimage to a couple friends of mine in south east Ohio whom I liked very much and in whom I could find no deceit. They convinced me in the bible that what was happening today could be shown in prophesy in the Bible, especially Revelation. It was then that I acknowledged that the world needed to be saved and that Jesus was the one who could do it.
Many months had passed and I was conflicted in many issues regarding what was important and how to avoid sin and what was sin and so forth. The confusion ended when I finally admitted to my Lord that It was not just the world that had to be saved. I had to be saved. That it was not just the world for which Jesus laid down his life for. It was also for me. I know that sound crazy to those who believe, how could I make such a fundamental mistake. And I'm sure it sounds crazy to those who do not believe such as the person I was before. I had a very hard heart that took the prayers of many people and many years for me to soften. I thank you all that helped me along the way never condemning me but lifting me up.
