Mass Murderer's Testimony

on March 1, 1995

If a person doesn't think that there is a God to be accountable to, then what's the point of trying to modify your behaviour to keep it within acceptable ranges?

Before his death, convicted mass murderer Jeffrey Dahmer (considered by many to be the most notorious killer of all time) made the following comment on the Dateline NBC program, on November 29, 1994.

'If a person doesn't think that there is a God to be accountable to, then what's the point of trying to modify your behaviour to keep it within acceptable ranges? That's how I thought anyway. I always believed the theory of evolution as truth, that we all just came from the slime. When we died, you know, that was it, there is nothing, and I've since come to believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is truly God, and I believe that I, as well as everyone else, will be accountable to Him.'
