How Dr. Maurice Rawlings Became A Christian

Dr.Maurice S. Rawlings

The following is an excerpt from Dr. Rawlings‘ book - To Hell and Back

I was giving CPR to a patient when the following incident occurred. I inserted a pacemaker through the shoulder and guided it through the vain into Charlie’s heart.

His heart stopped so I began to pound on the his heart, but as I did blood spurted out, I stopped to adjust the pacemaker. And as I did, Charlie’s eyes would roll back in his head, he would sputter, turn blue, and convulse. This happened several times.

Once while I was stopped to adjust the pacemaker Charlie screamed, ‘Don’t stop, don’t stop, I’m in Hell, I’m in Hell.’ Hallucinations, I thought at first, but most victims say, ‘Take your big hands off me, your breaking my ribs,’ but he was saying the opposite ‘For Gods sake don’t stop! Don’t you understand, every time you stop I’m in Hell.”

When he asked me to pray for him I felt downright insulted. I told him to shut up, I’m a doctor, not a minister or a psychiatrist. Then the nurse gave me that expectant look. What would you do?

That’s when I composed a make believe prayer. I made him repeat the prayer to keep him off my back. Say it!

Jesus Christ son of God, Keep me out of Hell.

And a very strange thing took place. He was no longer that wild-eyed screaming lunatic. It was then that I too became a Christian.”

  1. I just got gloriously saved on February 15th 2009. I have been going to church for thirteen years, religous and lost. Don’t get me wrong I did not want to go to hell, but I came to God a sinner, and I for the first time in my life I had godly sorrow for my sin, and not just trying to get fire insurance (2nd Corinthians 7:10, 1611 KJV)I know there is a hell and if you reject the Lord Jesus Christ you will burn in hell for all of eternity. There is only one door to heaven and that door is the Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:9, 1611 KJV)If you try and get to heaven any other way, you will die in yor sins and go to hell.

    So I begg you all that are lost and on your road to hell, ask the Lord to save you ( Romans 10:9&10 1611 KJV) He will save you and you will know it, I have peace that passeth all understanding the bible talks about, I am resting in the Lord. You cannot work your way to heaven, water cannot wash your sins away only the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ can ( 1st John 1:7, 1611 KJV)
