About Me:
My name is Doug Wahl. I spent the majority of my life as an atheist- but my life changed about five years ago. I am now a bible thumbing, born again, Jesus Freak. However at least one of my old ideas remains true- the biggest problem with Christianity are the Christians.
I have written a book called Gradually to God hoping to change the perception of Christians

Maybe
