George Foreman on conversion and forgiveness

I’m reading George Foreman’s biography “By George” which is a really delightful book.  Foreman’s renewed character, from feral street kid to proud boxer to humbled sinner saved by Christ, shines through his writing and he sounds a lot like he speaks in his interview here:

    George Foreman’s transformation is truly worth noting. Prior to his change, he was a smug, tight-lipped, and angry. After his change he displayed all the characteristics of someone exactly the opposite of that. If this change had happened due to his own will, it would have been ego-driven, and therefore limited. He might have appeared somewhat different, but the same behaviours would have stayed. He might’ve appeared happier, or less aggressive, or even more talkative, but there would have been something missing. He still would’ve seemed like he was suppressing something. But the change that truly “overtook” him was really that; an overtaking. It was something that happened from outside of him, and not inside. The change being so thorough and sudden, while being sustained for quite a few years now, is only added evidence that it couldn’t have been the result of self-will. And as with a multitude of evidence displayed to us on a daily basis, it is our choice to believe or not, as it should be.
