ApologetiX Anonymous: Letter from a Source with No Name
Fri., Jun. 21. 2019 10:19am EDT

In the journalism business, when you use an anonymous source, it can call into question a story's credibility. However, as you read this encouraging email, we think you'll understand why the person who wrote it wants to remain nameless for now:

I bought a USB a couple weeks ago for my friend who was struggling. He LOVED it. He was really encouraged by the gift and is your newest fan. You guys are touching lives for Him. Thank you for helping him get through this season in his life.

Here's a bit more for you: I've known him for a couple years now since he started coming to our church. He seemed to be a nice guy and said the things Christians say. On the outside he looked the part. What people didn't know, including his wife, was that was where things ended. He wasn't living the way God wanted him to live and was living life on his terms. He ended up losing his job over some of these issues and it will most likely make it hard to work in his field again. Not only did he face job loss, he also faced potential lawsuits and legal actions.

When he opened up to me a few weeks ago he was in tears. He saw the sin in his life. He saw he wasn't living the way a true believer should live. He was in tears and broken. But I saw a change. He wasn't worried about losing his job. He was excited and on fire. He looked like a new believer. He saw God working in his life and wants to live the way God wants him to live. He was excited that he saw God working in his life and he repeatedly said he was putting it all in His hands. He referenced Matthew 25:31-46 where Jesus separates the sheep and the goats. He saw how he was living. He saw he wasn't serious about how he was living for God and wanted to change.

He mentioned listening to his wife playing K-Love and how for the first time he heard the songs singing and speaking to him. He said he'd never connected with them before. I knew ApX was right up His alley, so I bought a USB and sent it to him as a way to encourage him.

Last Sunday we sat for a few minutes after church and I played him some of my favorites. I watched his eyes light up when he heard how awesome you guys sound. He couldn't wait to get home and start picking out his favorites. He's excited and on fire for Christ. I'm sure APX will be a great tool to encourage him as he begins to live out his new found life in Christ.

Feel free to share. Please leave BOTH our names off. Although he's very open with people and wants to tell his story to encourage others to change their lives and learn from his mistakes, this is his story to tell. I wouldn't want someone to find out what happened from me.
Editor's Note: Just to clarify, the person who wrote this was not anonymous to us, nor is his friend. They're real people rejoicing in a real Savior.
