Throughout high school, Nick was a proud atheist. With absolutely no desire to know God, Nick pushed his beliefs on those around him. His intolerance toward others who were religious led him to live in loneliness, without intimacy or friendship. Out of this loneliness was born an addiction to pornography. Through a discussion with his classmates, Nick was awakened to his ignorance and misunderstanding. After visiting The Village and hearing the gospel for the first time, God used a series of events to claim Nick’s heart and bring him to faith.
