Tim Allen REVEALS The Long And Winding Path That Led Him To Christ!
Tim Allen may be known for his hilarious jokes and handyman hobbies, but there’s a side of Tim Allen many haven’t seen.
Tim Allen believes in God. And if you meet him in person, you’ll quickly learn that he’s unashamed to tell you so.
But Allen doesn’t claim to be a perfect Christian. In fact, he admits that many of his life’s deepest struggles are what caused him to turn to Christ.
Tim Allen hasn’t always had it easy.. Like many celebrities of our day, Allen wrestled with addiction and alcoholism in his younger days.
Allen’s father was tragically killed by a drunk driver when Tim was only 11-years-old. Through the unimaginable grief, Tim struggled to pick up the pieces.
After his father’s tragic death, Allen questioned whether if he had prayed harder or had been with his father that fatal day, he could have prevented his death. Not knowing where else to turn, Allen found comfort in drug and alcohol abuse.
On October 2, 1978, Allen’s life took a dramatic turn when he was arrested for possession of over 650 grams (1.43 lb) of cocaine.
Allen pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges, and was released after serving two years and four months in federal prison.
Tim Allen hasn’t always been a Christian.
HE SHARED, “FOR YEARS, I JUST DID NOT LIKE THIS IDEA OF GOD, CHURCH,” HE SAID. “(I WAS) STILL A CHURCHGOER, BUT CONSTANTLY A CYNIC.”
BUT TODAY, HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. IN FACT, ALLEN’S WHOLE WORLD LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SINCE TURNING HIS LIFE OVER TO ‘THE BUILDER’ — AS HE AFFECTIONALLY REFERS TO CHRIST.
“I ALWAYS DO ASK — WHOEVER PUT ME HERE; THE BUILDER — WHAT DID YOU WANT ME TO DO? I JUST WANT A RELATIONSHIP WITH WHOEVER BUILT ME. THIS IS TOO MUCH; TOO WEIRD THAT IT HAPPENED BY ACCIDENT. I DON’T BELIEVE THAT I HAPPENED BY ACCIDENT.”
