So I got on stage and started doing the opposite.

Some of the people in the comedy world around me get on stage and talk about how they don’t believe in God. So I got on stage and started doing the opposite. Now I do jokes about how I got Baptized as an adult, in a 2,000 seat all African American Baptist church.  There was me, and about 20 little 5 year olds with their hair in braids…and me. I fit right in. Right – I’ve never fit in, I’m a comic. All comics come from the Island of Misfit Toys.  Anyway, I talk about a few embarrassing moments, and then I end with mentioning how for three days afterwards I was filled with the lightest, brightest, clearest, blissful energy. Call it the Holy Ghost or Spirit or whatever, but it happened.   Didn’t expect it. But there it was. That’s my personal experience, and how can you deny your pwn personal experience? Years later I read that bit in the Bible about how if you ask Jesus into your heart, you'll be filled with the Holy Spirit - and I was like- that happened to me. Wow.  That's true. I asked a comedian friend yesterday if he had ever even tried to connect with God, on a personal level. He said not really. I venture to guess that’s the case with a lot of people, that they deny the existence of God, without ever having spent some time investigating the personal experience for themselves, not from a book, but from experience.  I’d ask that you give it a shot, before you say something isn’t true. Forget about all the judgments that you might have against the word "Christianity" and just maybe think about that part about God's light being inside of you. God doesn't have to be "way out there" or filled with all the stuff that you didn't like from your childhood. God can be as close to you as you want Him to be. That's my experience. I meditate a lot. That's how I started on my spiritual journey about 10 years ago. And I think there's a lot of truth in "Be still and know that I am God."

It's worth a shot; what do you have to lose?
