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!
Sir John Marks
Born 29 November 1912 in the small town of
Winchester, Tennessee, he was raised in a devout Christian family. A biographical item
bearing some irony: a dozen years later in nearby Dayton, TN, the famous Scopes "Monkey
Trial" would unfold in a battle of evolution theory vs. fundamentalist views of Creation (that topic, HERE). He
decided early in life that he wanted to make a difference with his life and resources. I
don't yet have details of his coming personally to belief in Jesus.
He founded the highly successful Templeton group
of mutual funds. He later created The Templeton Foundation which gives
millions annually to religious and charitable causes (note its section on character developement), including the Templeton Prize in
religion...more money to an individual than in the Nobel Peace Prize.. He is recently quoted
as saying, "I focus on spiritual wealth; and I'm busier, more enthusiastic, and more joyful
than I have ever been!"

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
