Ex-wrestler Lex Luger talks of new life in Christ

Ex-wrestler Lex Luger talks of new life in Christ
Posted on Nov 22, 2011

CLARKDALE, Ga. (BP) -- Lex Luger -- also known as "The Total Package" and "The Narcissist" -- gained worldwide fame as a pro wrestling champion. He stood at 6-feet 4-inches tall, weighed 265 pounds and had a 32-inch waist. His muscles were like polished steel and his perfectly sculptured body added to the wrestling mania that had gripped the nation. He frequently highlighted his muscular physique by posing in front of full-length mirrors before many of his matches. His wrestling persona was designed to thrill his fans. His accomplishments in the ring are legendary.

For the last five and a half years, he's also been a Christian, learning and growing more each day. God, he says, has helped him "get rid of the last remnant of that vanity and pride" that was the emblem of his ring persona.

Born in 1958, Luger played professional football in the Canadian Football League and the now-defunct United States Football League before beginning his wrestling career. He did not have the privilege of growing up in a Christian home. He never went to church, but grew up chasing fame in the WCW and WWE on a track that included drugs, alcohol and women.


"That August he had a nightmare in his hotel room. He recalled of the dream, "I ended up in the bottom of a pond, asking myself, 'Is this all there is?' I was on drugs at the time and actually think I died and slipped into eternity for a few moments. Suddenly, I sat up, looked up and saw a little spark -- a little white light. I was enveloped in darkness, in hell, but sensed that God loved me enough to give me that speck of light.


"Then on April 16, 2006, he talked me into going to church on a Sunday night. I went to Clarkdale First Baptist Church and heard Pastor Marvin 'Doc' Frady preach on Matthew 7:24-29. He told about a man who built his house on the sand and another man who built his house on a rock.

"I felt like God was speaking through him to me. I could see all my stuff on sand with no foundation. All my life was built on shifting sand and was nothing more than a house of cards. My empire was not built on a rock, but sand. Forum Index -> CHAPEL
