Atheist Who “Mocked Christianity” Falls in Love With Jesus, Becomes Seminary Professor in Texas

Once an atheist who mocked Christianity and the God of the Bible, Dr. Hongyi Yang is now a well-respected professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.

Yang grew up in Southwest China where she was taught that God was nothing more than a fantasy or religious crutch used by uneducated people who didn’t know any better.

In fact, the first time she ever saw a Bible was in 2000 when she moved to Texas as a foreign exchange student. Prior to relocating to the United States, the assistant professor of systematic theology in women’s studies said she only knew one Christian her whole life.

Transitioning to the Lone Star state seated firmly in the Bible Belt proved to be quite the culture shock for Yang.

She was suddenly “surrounded by Christians and churches,” which admittedly left her with “contempt” toward Christianity. She was that convinced God was a myth and that we create our own destinies.

“I was an atheist at that time,” Yang explained. “I believed that there was no God who could save us and that we must strive for success by our own ability, diligence and luck.”
