Ha! It’s been a wild ride for sure! I was born a Presbyterian — but my parents liked the Anglican church (The Church of England) so that’s where we attended service.

The born again period began when Lagos (my home city in Nigeria) was starting to delve into the business of “revivals” which was essentially instituted by people who figured out how to make a great living utilizing the vulnerability of people who are easily swayed.

And then of course you throw in the violent Christian movies that depicted the pain and suffering assigned to those who either live in sin or are martyrs of faith — and yeah — I basically didn’t stand a chance!
