Mitchell Kuhn

Mitchell operates TryingTheSpiririts.com with the help of his faithful webmaMitchel-Kuhnster Riquard Vreekamp.

Mitchell Kuhn was born and raised in Dallas, TX where he attended Trinity Christian Academy from kindergarten through 12th grade. This is where he gained a working knowledge of the bible and first learned about the Christian faith.

Mitchell attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas TX and studied Finance. He became much more serious about his faith during his sophomore year of college and decided to take a year off of school and go work for Campus Crusade for Christ in Pisa, Italy. He spent 2004-2005 in Pisa learning Italian, doing evangelism at the University of Pisa, and studying Christian apologetics.

Mitchell was deeply impacted by his experience in Italy. He began to see his own shortcomings more clearly and marveled at God’s sovereignty. Mitchell’s most important revelation during his 11 months in Italy was that no one can be saved if God does not open their eyes and soften their heart. Mitchell was a staunch Calvinist at this time.

Upon returning from Italy, Mitchell began to work for his father at the family insurance agency while finishing his degree at SMU and leading bible studies. His health began to decline as stress mounted from business challenges and a demanding schedule.

Mitchell was attending Watermark Community Church at the time. He was asked to be a part of the young adult’s elder board and led a bible study for young men.

Through continued health issues and business challenges, Mitchell began to see that he did not have a free will as he once thought. He saw God’s total sovereignty in his own life and witnessed it throughout the scriptures. He also began to question the common Christian doctrine of eternal torment in hell.

Mitchell began to do in-depth studies of the scriptures in 2006 which eventually lead him to leave Watermark Community Church in the fall of 2007. He was greatly influenced by the writings of Mike Vinson, found on IsWasandWillBe.com. Mr. Vinson confirmed many of the things that Mitchell was discovering himself and was used of God to open Mitchell’s eyes to the spiritual meaning behind the letters of the scriptures.

Mitchell travels extensively to strengthen the Churches and fellowship with other members of the Body of Christ. None of Mitchell’s work would be possible without his connection to the other members of the Body of Christ spread all over the world. He is well aware that all things are caused by God and that he can do nothing of himself. All glory be to God the Father.

Mitchell earns his living as a Financial Advisor. He founded Wisdom Financial and is a 12+ year veteran of the insurance industry.

 Victor Torres: 

Victor PHoto

Victor was born and raised in the Philippines. He was raised a Catholic but his parents were never devout followers.  When  Victor was 21 years old, he joined a Catholic bible study group which is when he began reading the bible. Two years later, Victor migrated to Utah and met his wife Ann who is a member of a church called Iglesia Ni Cristo. He converted to that church back in 1998.

When Victor’s father (who remained a Catholic) died in 2004, Victor started searching the internet regarding hell and God’s salvation. He came across www.IsWasandWillBe.com and the writings of Mike Vinson . Victor learned that hell is not endless torment and that God has a plan to save all of His creation. He also discovered that mankind does not have free will and that God is in control of all things. God began opening Victor’s eyes to see the truth of God’s word which included: the law of Moses is for a carnal nation, the old testament are types and shadows of us today, the words in the bible have a deeper spiritual meaning, etc.

Victor makes his living as a computer programmer in Utah.
