George Jones finds religion
There is hope for all of us.
"They said it would never happen -– but hard-drinkin',
cussin' country giant George Jones is telling pals that he's found God.
'George always told his drinking buddies he'd be saved
when Hell freezes over,' says a pal. 'Now it's happened. George has found
religion and he's a changed man. He's saying that he's seen the light and
been born again. I guess the devil must be feeling pretty chilly.'
The country great known as Possum in the music world -– has
been growing more spiritual since he cheated death when his Lexus smashed into a
concrete bridge on Tennessee's Highway 96 in March 1999.
According to his pals, George consulted noted Tennessee
preacher Vestal Goodman.
'George called her personally', says an insider. "He
asked her to visit his home to discuss the Lord because he had a life-changing
experience and believed he was born again."
It is notable that the commentator in this particular article
used the word religion, but we disagree and say that George Jones did not find
religion, but he found Christ who gave him the gift of salvation and everlasting
It is this reason that the Word of God is clear in 2 Corinthians 5:17:
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a
new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
Make sure you have a similar experience because without it
you will never see God.
