From “Saved by Satan” to “God is an awesome God”: Discover the testimony of Carl Sartor

“By His grace I am by far the best version of me I have ever been. My God is an awesome God and I pray that everyone can experience His love like me. »

Carl Sartor was baptized in November in the United States, and his testimony, shared last week on Facebook, is going viral on social media. It must be said that not long ago, he still proudly wore his “Saved by Satan” T-shirt.

He explains on Facebook that he has never been "a spiritual person".

“I thought when you died, you were dead. That was it. I've been running away from God since I was about 5 years old. I would have supported you tooth and nail that he didn't exist. »

He then looks back on a past made up of drugs, alcohol and anger. But he was baptized last November and prays that all may experience God's love.

“I was baptized in November and for the first time in my life I felt whole. For the first time in my life, I had a spiritual experience. God is real and I will continue to walk this path with Him by my side. By His grace I am by far the best version of me I have ever been. My God is an awesome God and I pray that everyone can experience His love like me. »

Rich Walters is in the same church as Carl. He remembers the first time he entered the church.

“These photos are a few weeks apart. He has denied God and hated him since he was 5 years old. He ran around, got stoned and got drunk for the majority of his life. He went to prison for almost 10 years in total and he literally destroyed everything around him. A few months ago he came to our church for the first time in 35 years. He came with an open mind and a willing heart because life revealed his ugly head and brought him to the brink of destruction. I looked back during the service and watched the power of God fall in that sanctuary and immediately saw him weep. We haven't even been able to preach yet because we were still singing and praising and worshipping. We didn't even make it 15 minutes in that service before he ran to that baptistery. Today is adoring. Today he is a believer. Today he is my brother in Christ. »
