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!
Media mogul, Ted
As a youngster, Ted intended to be a missionary.
He says that he has been "born again" seven times so he must really be a Christian (or is God
just drawing him?...check this).
When a teenager, Ted's sister, Mary Jane, came down with lupus and suffered terribly before
dying. Ted had prayed for an hour each day "for naught". Ever since, Ted has been mad at God
and considers himself an "atheist" or an "agnostic" today.
But, guess what! In spite of his well-known
hostility toward Christianity and his notorious line, "Christianity is for losers" [see
Dr. John F. Redman], ironically,
Ted produced a movie about the central role of the Christian faith in Gen. Robert E. Lee,
Gen. Stonewall Jackson, and others ("Gods and generals"). He blames his divorce from
Jane Fonda on her conversion to Christianity [her testimony]. Don't listen to the above
pitiful quote! Scroll the testimony
index on this website and note the many "winners" (though the "good news" of Jesus is
that He loves winners...example [JT]...and "losers"!).
Now, the Christian faith will hold that, if Ted
was ever really born again, he can backslide; but he cannot lose his salvation. I
tell you that the revelation of the full story is not over as to Ted Turner's position with

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
