From A Prostitute To A Man Of God

Jeffrey McCall used to have the name "Scarlett" and dressed as a woman. Now he leads freedom marches in big cities in the States. These marches are for everyone who have left the LGBT lifestyle. He struggled with homosexuality and drugs until he was 23. He felt like he was a woman in a guy's body and began a life as "Scarlett". During this period he drank alot and prostituted his body. But he also secretly watched sermons. And he surrendered his life to God after he heard the voice of God tell him: "You will live for me", McCall shares on CNB News.

"I started struggling with same-sex attraction around twelve, and around fifteen years old I acted on it."

"I started struggling with same-sex attraction around twelve, and around fifteen years old I acted on it."

McCall shares that he was on the look for love, but unfortunately nothing made him feel whole and loved. 

"So, from 18 to 23, I lived in Nashville, Tennessee.  And in those years, my whole identity was in being homosexual," he said. "I just partied and would shop, and that was my life, shopping, partying, and whoever was my boyfriend at the time. I was addicted to drugs. I was taking a ton of Xanax and smoking crystal meth," he recalled. "I'm about 6'4" almost, and I weighed about 160 lbs. at that time. I was very sick. So, I knew that if I didn't leave Nashville physically, I would die," McCall confessed. 

After he graduated college and had his degree, he also had a new identity: "Scarlett".

"The summer after graduating, I did my first drag show. I had grown up around a lot of transgender, transsexual drag queens because I had a family member who did shows," McCall explained. "And after that summer, I started living as Scarlet and I would start dressing and-and I started even dating men as Scarlet. And so, from there, it fed it even more that, you know, this is who I am. I'm in the wrong body," he said. "I thought, you know, I'm going to have the surgeries and transition into a woman and this is what's going to make me happy. And during those years as Scarlet, I was beginning to be very promiscuous, very promiscuous where sometimes it was more than one guy a day. During those years, I also prostituted my body," McCall continued. "That's when the drinking really heavily began."

And then he hit rockbottom when he got really drunk one night and had threathened to commit suicide. He spent two days in the psychiatric ward of the hospital. 

"Here I was hitting rock bottom. I'm in graduate school.

"I'm prostituting my body. I'm with all these different guys."

I'm drunk every other day, I'm prostituting my body. I'm with all these different guys. I have nothing, really," he admitted. 

But during his time as Scarlett, McCall secretly was listening to Jentezen Franklin, the pastor of Free Chapel. He visited this church twice when he was in college.

"He would come on television, or, I would look him up on YouTube. I would listen to him and the Holy Spirit was using it to convict me of sin," McCall said.

As the Holy spirit was convicting him, there was this one night he was weeping and crying out to the Lord: "God, I know people live for you, not just go to church on Sunday, not just play a religious game, like something happened and their life was transformed. And I said, 'Will I ever live for you?' My voice went silent. My thoughts stopped. And I heard God say, 'Yes, you will live for me."

"And I heard God say, 'Yes, you will live for me."

A couple of months after this lifechanging night McCall decides to give up his former lifestyle. He threw everything away that he owned as Scarlett, and that was a huge step for him since he was on the verge of having surgeries to become a woman. And he chose to give God a chance and have a relationship with Him. 

"It was almost as if God, that summer, stripped everything I learned from the church, from the LGBTQ community, from everyone and said, 'Everything you've heard, just throw it out and I'm going to lay a clear foundation for you." 

He even got a strong request from God: to make a video where he would publicly aknowlegde Jesus and cut ties with everything from his past. Thousands of people viewed it but not all messages were supportive: "You can't leave homosexuality. You're transitioning. Like, This is who you are. What do you mean you're just leaving everything?"

But McCall did not get discouraged. He shares: "When I started losing the friends and some family members, my relationship with the Lord just kept blossoming. 

"When I started losing the friends and some family members, my relationship with the Lord just kept blossoming."

The day that I made the Facebook live video, that was the day I was filled with the Holy Spirit. The Bible became completely alive to me."

And as he got free from his past and stepped into his life with God he was happier then ever. God invited him to keep sharing Christ's love and show the world that anyone can have this relationship.
