Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!
Francis S. Collins, M. D.,
Dr. Collins headed the Human Genome Project which announced the completion of the unlocking of the human DNA genome in 2003. Born in Virginia in 1950, he was raised by
nonreligious parents. He rides a Harley and picks a guitar! He became "an obnoxious atheist". He had doubts as a medical student.
As a scientist, he knew that decisions about important things ought to be made by evaluating
the evidence...he'd become an atheist based on no evidence evaluation at all. Early in his
"looking" at evidence, he read C. S. Lewis' Mere Christianity. "In the very first
chapter, all my arguments about the irrationality of faith lay in ruins."
Francis Collins speaks and writes to call for scientists to
pursue evidence for God with a scientific rigor. He is author of the 2006 book, The Language
of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief. The link beginning this paragraph goes into his view of creation and his specific view, BioLogos (Collins founded the BioLogos Foundation & BioLogos is explained there).
He heads the NIH which has a $31 billion budget in 2015. Dr. Collins says in September 2015 that the NIH research hospital (the largest such in the world) offers a "Lazarus opportinity" to people with diseases who have run out of options. If a man of this statue and expert in this arena believes in God, wouldn't you want more insight on how mankind came about (check a series HERE; & thought provokers HERE)?

You have just read a very brief example of the
powerful, supernatural transformation of a person's life which is possible through the
acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting Jesus now
