Art Katz conversion testimony

Art Katz’s Conversion to Yeshua ישוע המשיח

Art recounts his conversion experience as an unbelieving atheist and former Marxist, apprehended by a God whom he was not seeking, significantly and symbolically in Jerusalem, his conversion experience has been powerfully used to bring other of Art’s Jewish kinsmen to the faith of their fathers.

Art Katz was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1929 of Jewish parents. Raised through the depression years and turbulence of World War II, and inducted into Marxist and existentialist ideologies, as well as merchant marine and military experiences, Art was brought to a final moral crisis as a high school teacher—able to raise, but not able to answer the groaning perplexities of the modern age.

During a leave of absence and on a hitch-hiking odyssey through Europe and the Middle East, the cynical and unbelieving atheist, vehement anti-religionist and anti-Christian was radically apprehended by a God who was actively seeking him. The actual journal of that experience, Ben Israel — Odyssey of a Modern Jew, recounts his quest for the true meaning to life, which climaxed significantly and symbolically in Jerusalem.

How to Bring Your Children to Christ- Ray Comfort

Telling the children to just ask Jesus into their heart can be a eternal detrimental thing to the child or anyone for that matter. If you are involved in a VBS then this should be a required reading/viewing.

A pastor was once approached by his six-year-old son who said he wanted to “ask Jesus into his heart.” The father, suspecting that the child lacked the knowledge of sin, told him that he could do so when he was older, then sent him off to bed.

A short time later, the boy got out of bed and asked his father if he could give his life to the Savior. The father still wasn’t persuaded of the son’s understanding, so, not wanting the child’s salvation to be spurious, he sent him back to his room.

A third time the son returned. This time the father questioned him about whether he had broken any of the Ten Commandments. The young boy didn’t think he had. When asked if he was a liar, the child said he wasn’t. The father thought for a moment, then asked him how many lies he had to tell to be a liar. When it was established that one lie made a person a liar, the child realized he had lied, and broke down in uncontrollable tears. When the father then inquired whether he wanted to “ask Jesus into his heart,” the child cringed and shook his head. He was fearful because now he knew that he had sinned against God.

At this point, he could do more than experimentally “ask Jesus into his heart.” He could find a place of godly sorrow, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ ().
