Truth Pursuits: There’s Nothing Trivial about It!
Dr. Yassef Hakim was a doctor in theology and held several impressive degrees from prominent universities throughout the world. He studied various religions and was considered by his colleagues a walking encyclopedia of knowledge of religious studies. Yes Yassef knew religion, he knew it well, but he didn’t know God.

He traveled about giving speeches and guest lectures, which were often dry and uninteresting. He didn’t see anything wrong with looking at God and religion as historical and sociological, instead of the Creator and his children.

He saw a light in his inner eyes and called out, but no one was there, except for the angel, who was ordered to escort him to his new home, a place separated from God. As he slipped into death, for a moment of time he saw The Eyes of the Almighty and said his dying utterance, “God!”
