“As she sat in the doctor’s office that day literally waiting to end my life, the doctor just looked over at her … and just simply said to her, ‘I’m not going to let you do this one,’” Zwayne recently told PureFlix.com’s “Pure Talk.” “I almost didn’t make it.”
Now, Zwayne is a well-known Christian leader who made maybe one of the most influential film, “180”, streaming at PureFlix.com. A movie that combats abortion.
“Before I turned 16, I had already been kicked out of two high schools, I had become a gang member with the Crips and I had attempted to commit suicide in front of my own family,” Zwayne said. “But on a divine August evening in 1991, God reached down his hand into time and space, grabbed a hold of the heart of this wretched sinner, opened my eyes to the truth of the gospel and radically transformed my life.”
A friend invited him to a Christian outreach and that was a defining moment for him. “God just opened my eyes,” he said, calling it an “instantaneous radical transformation. I was a brand new creation.”
Within just five years, Zwayne went to a Christian university, got ordained, got married and started a family — all by the age of 21.
