Coming out of the 60's into the 70's Russ was a rock n rolling bar fighting seeker, consuming drugs/alcohol and searching through every door he could to find meaning. He was a dabbler in dark occultism and a practitioner of golden Buddha meditation where he was trained in astral projection to seek the ascended masters.... Russ says "I sought to experience anything spiritually, supernatural and alternative I could .....to find what it was I was looking for." But I didn't, instead I found myself on the edge of death and hell itself.... see more in the upcoming autobiography 'Once Blind'.

Soon ONCE BLIND: but now I see. See them here.
Once blind tells the story: ....None of the finite spirits or counterfeit spirituality led me to God. It was only when a man so filled with the Spirit of God unleashed on me the love, power and message of Jesus Christ that I found my answer.
When I accepted the living Christ into my life in September 1975 the blinders came off and the presence, power and love of God came in. The clarity between the deception of darkness (even when masqueraded as light) and the truth that is in Jesus filled my life and changed it forever! It's not a religion, not a set of rules...it's an awesome relationship with GOD, knowing God is not only possible, God loves you and wants you.
It is the living Jesus who came 2000 years ago fulfilling hundreds of prophecies, He was foretold, conceived and born unlike anyone else in human history. He lived free from sin and evil, showed us what God is, does and says. He now gives to all who come to Him His power, new life, help and the presence of the coming (glorification) indestructible, irreversible immortality. He came seeking us/you and I and no one wants us more than God does.
He came to conquer radical evil, sin, death, hell and satan. He went to the Cross...died, rose from the dead and ascended to heaven from where He came. He is the Living Savior....Alive right now, seeking you also and is coming back soon. Read the supernatural living Words that the Spirit of God has given to all humanity. The Book of John.
