This program features a pre-recorded message of Rev. Lon Solomon, giving his testimony to a men’s breakfast gathering. Lon tells about his Jewish heritage, his Jewish upbringing, and his years of rebellion in college, which included promiscuity, drug use and drug dealing. He describes a turning point in his life where a friend commented on his false self-perception, and he realised he is selfish, self-centred, immoral, and unethical. Lon began a search for meaning and turned to Eastern religions for answers and then later visited a campus rabbi. When nothing dealt with the pain he was experiencing, Lon’s growing despair led to suicidal thoughts. In the spring of 1971, Lon saw a street evangelist handing out tracts on a corner in Chapel Hill and he felt a sense that, that man had the answers.
