Why Steve Chose Christ: An Orthodox Testimony
On Thursday the 24th of September, 2015, the famous “Men in Black” Series, sponsored by Saint Elias Church of Diamond Springs, CA, held its latest missionary event in the golden hills of El Dorado County.
Though not a “man in black”, we hosted Steve Christoforou to hear him share why he chose Christ. His answers were straight forward and compelling: he chose Christ for the same reason Gandhi rejected Him. He chose Christ because of pain, the very rationale from which so many deny the existence of God. Lastly, he didn’t choose Christ because He’s the best religious idea out there, but because of something far more personal. Steve talks to a largely adult crowd about why the hard choice to draw near to God was the best decision he’s ever made.
