    War Machine recently posted a link on his Twitter account (via Twishort) to a religious-themed essay he wrote. He said that he read a couple of books on Christianity recently, and he said the first Christian book “was great, [and] full of facts that are impossible to argue against.”

    And after reading both books, he summarized his new beliefs with this statement:

    “I'm embarrassed to only have believed [in Christ] now, when my life is in such turmoil. I feel that it makes me ‘weak,’ that I am abandoning ‘reason’ only in desperation, but that's not what it is. Besides the overwhelming evidence in the books, there are all the ‘coincidences’ in the days surrounding this, as well as my life's history. Why, when I am truly a good, loving person and honestly try to keep my nose clean, do things keep coming out from left field and blindsiding me? Could it not be God saying, ‘Wake up dummy! I'm not gonna let you live this War Machine ego up and allow you to be happy until you learn to love me, the one who made you!’ If I were following Jesus would any of my trouble have ever happened? If I didn't first break Christy's heart through my own selfishness, would she have done what she did? Before her, would I have grown restless with my perfect wife, if I wasn't living for ME, and instead living for Jesus? A few blogs back I wrote about Genghis Kahn and asked -- WWGD -- I've asked that too much in life. If I had asked WWJD I'd be happy and free.”

    (The link to his entire essay is below.)

    I just don't understand how he didn't have the presence of mind to get the fuck out of the country when he was on the run. He could live a free man instead of being caged for most of the rest of his life.

    If he's sincere God will forgive him and I hope he finds inner peace.

    Doesn't mean society should forgive him or not keep him locked up like an animal for a really, really long time. Dude deserves to be in a cage.

    Spleen too, I think.

    I actually feel for War Machine. His story is traumatizing just to read about. But he's a danger to society with his insanity that he allowed to consume him (whether he lacked real guidance or not) and the world is better off with him behind bars.

    This is great news to hear! It's never to late to trust Christ.
    While he made a horrific mistake, I'm happy he's decided to change his life around.
