The co-founder of the South African Satanic Church has converted to Christianity, despite saying just weeks ago that he did not believe in the existence of Jesus Christ.
After a radio interview - where he said he'd never been shown unconditional love - the interviewer came up and hugged him.
A week later, he found out that she was a Christian.
Riaan Swiegelaar said he opened himself up to God and recognised the love of Christ immediately.
He thought his conversion would go under the radar, but that was far from true. it's garnered the attention of delighted Christians around the world.
His sudden decision to stop worshipping Satan and start worshipping Jesus has garned the attention of delighted Christians around the world.
Swiegelaar said: "After that interview, she held me in a way that I've never been loved. That's all she did; she didn't say anything."
"I've never had anyone, let alone a Christian, do that. I've never had that kind of experience. I never knew a Christian could show that much love and could accept me unconditionally."
"I had a meeting with council members after I had done all these interviews, and we affirmed that satanism is growing," he says. "I had to do a ritual by myself to see what was the next step. How do I get more power and influence?
"I opened myself up, and Jesus appeared. I was extremely cocky and I said, 'Whatever.' I said, 'If You are Jesus, prove it.' He flooded me with the most beautiful love and energy, and I recognized it immediately because of what the lady at the radio station did for me. I recognized the love of Christ immediately."
