Cult Survivor, Author, Keynote Speaker, Christian
Hating God, Loving God presents A. K. Davies' graphic and painful memories of being raised in a secretive, abusive, and manipulative cult, and how his childhood sufferings spilled over into a troubled adolescence and a deeply disturbed adulthood. In throwing off the lies told to him by the cult's elders, he also threw away any sense of God's love and mercy.
His pain, fuelled by a hatred of God, whom he blamed for all his troubles, turned him into a bully, a petty thief, and, but for the grace of God, a murderer. Somehow, he survived adolescence, got an education, and set out on the road to making money, believing that the accumulation of possessions was the only thing that would earn him respect. But his pain persisted, and he sought relief in all the wrong places. Even the unexpected love of a good woman was not enough to take away the pain.
Adrift in an ocean of despair, he decided to commit suicide. It was only then when he was at his lowest point that he was ready to accept a truth he had persistently denied: the truth that God loved him.
After giving my life to Jesus Christ, who transformed him and renewed his soul, he went from hating God to loving God.

Keynote engagement reviews
Alex shared his story recently at our Eleven88 Youth Program. The teens were inspired, encouraged, and challenged. Alex shared his struggles while highlighting God’s fingerprints being evident throughout his life. Many of the young people shared it gave them hope to never give up when times are tough. Many of the teens in our program are not Christian and learnt of God’s love and plan for them through Alex’s testimony.
