Pastor and speaker Kegan Wesley lives a lifestyle of love. But years ago, he expressed those same sentiments by a different standard: As a gay man addicted to drugs.
It started when he was raped and molested at a birthday party when he was 9.
"I didn't know where to go or who to go to," Wesley says. "... but I didn't know if they would believe me, so I began to believe that lie in my heart."
But at 18, he encountered God.
"I was borderline atheist. I didn't believe because I didn't know Jesus," Wesley says. "Long story short, I went to the altar that night, didn't know what to say, or how to pray."
