Evel Knievel Overcome with Good

On Palm Sunday at Robert Schuller's Crystal Cathedral Evel Knievel gave his testimony.

Knievel said, "I don't know what in the world happened. I don't know if it was the power of the prayer or God himself, but it just reached out, either while I was driving or walking down the sidewalk or sleeping, and it just—the power of God in Jesus just grabbed me. … All of a sudden, I just believed in Jesus Christ. I did, I believed in him! … I rose up in bed and, I was by myself, and I said, 'Devil, Devil, you bastard you, get away from me. I cast you out of my life.' … I just got on my knees and prayed that God would put his arms around me and never, ever, ever let me go."

Schuller then stopped the service and said, "I believe there is someone here who now wants to be baptized." Between 500-800 people came forward.
