An atheist who grew up in a Jewish home, Neil Getzlow remembers more about his family’s beliefs surrounding Jesus than the holy days he celebrated with extended family who brought food and gifts to his childhood home in St. Louis, Missouri.
Even at the age of nine, when he first looked at pornographic magazines left out by his divorced mother, Getzlow believed Jesus was worse than the images that fueled his sexual addiction into adulthood.
Confessing his lifelong addiction to porn and sex outside of marriage to his wife Amy after being blackmailed by a hooker, Getzlow came face-to-face with the person he believed was dirtier than himself – Jesus.
After Amy heard the sordid details of Neil’s double life for the first time in March of 2020, he braced himself for her response.
“Amy looks up at me and says, ‘Neil, Jesus forgave me for my sins. How can I not forgive you for yours? I forgive you.’
“That was Jesus talking directly to me, saying ‘I forgive you,’ That moment I was released,” said Getzlow who, up until this point, didn’t even use Jesus as a curse word.
Now six weeks after he paid a woman for sex at a hotel in Chicago during a business trip, Getzlow was forgiven by the Lord and his wife.
