Freedom rather than Death!
In October of 1999, Steve turned himself in to the local jail for the crime of incest. It is very unusual for a sexual offender of this magnitude to reveal the extent of his sin, disregarding the consequences. Two days before he confessed at the jail, he seriously considered killing his whole family and then himself. An audible voice (the Holy Spirit, he believes) told him to wait two days. He told his wife to leave the home with their six children, threatening to kill them if they didn't leave immediately.

Two days later Steve believed the Holy Spirit told him that if he turned himself in, Jesus would never leave him or forsake him, no matter what the consequences were for his crime. Steve knew that this was his last chance for freedom, as he lived in torment day and night, feeling totally bound by lust and depravity. He had tried many different times and ways to stop his behavior. He knew he had to "come clean" to get freedom.

20-40 year prison sentence
Steve is presently serving a 20-40 year sentence in a Michigan prison. Here's part of his story, shared in February 2001.
