His election as president in was followed by the longest period of sustained economic growth in U.
Although I am dead, nevertheless I live, but not I, but Christ in me.
This is a great mystery which can only be understood by revelation. I still find it quite remarkable that I am at this time in my life spending many hours studying various subjects related to the Scriptures.
Having been an atheist most of my life, it still seems rather strange being in my office surrounded by hundreds of Bibles and reference books related to Biblical topics. The first time I actually remember reading a portion of Scripture was when I was still a young boy.
I remember reading a few pages from Genesis thinking it was all a bunch of nonsense, mythology, folklore. Today I think quite differently. My mother went through this war as a teenager. She walked through a living hell on earth, where men kill each other for all sorts of insane reasons.
She was raised a good Evangelical Protestant. The war tested her faith. It proved her religion was empty. She married a Roman Catholic when I was 5 or 6. I found myself surrounded by nuns force feeding me "catechism. But that didn't completely squelch my curiosity about God.
When I was around 12 years old, I went to a Methodist church one Sunday quite on my own. My parents never went to any kind of churches except for weddings. I remember expecting something very special.
After all, entering the "house of God" should be a pretty important occasion. I sat in the last pew. I was quite amazed that friends I knew were playing in the other last pew.
One old man was sleeping through the service. The women seemed more interested in what everyone else was wearing than on what the minister was saying. But what really made an impression on me that day, as a 12 year old boy, was the minister.
It was very plain to me, that his heart was not on what he was doing. All these people came to this building to "worship the Lord. As for the minister, I used to ride by his beautiful parsonage watching him practice his golf swing in the backyard.
This is what he truly worships.

I had some unpleasant experiences happen to me which made me feel that if God was good, He wouldn't have let me experience such pain. And what about the horrors my mother went through in Nazi Germany! Well, I looked at the world with all its misery and suffering and just could not see how a loving God could stand by and watch all these things happen without intervening.
I certainly wasn't interested in worshipping a God who wasn't good. So I gradually fell into the mold of an atheist. Having been poor during my childhood, I decided to chase the "Almighty Dollar" and buy myself some happiness.
In college I met a Jewish girl who I ended up marrying. Her parents wanted me to convert to Judaism before getting married. I went to conversion classes.
The way this reformed Rabbi laid out his understanding of Judaism, it sounded pretty good. But all the Jews I was familiar with certainly didn't live what he taught.
What good is a religion of words without substance, I thought. So, I didn't convert, but we got married anyway. For the next few years I chased the American dream and finally ended up coming very close to fulfilling it.
I had my own business, a lovely home in a rich neighborhood, still married, two kids and enough acreage to satisfy my desire for peace and quiet. But these things did not really satisfy. I was not happy with my marriage or my business or really anything else.William Henry Gates III (born October 28, ) is an American business magnate, investor, author, philanthropist, humanitarian, and principal founder of Microsoft Corporation.
