Meet the Doctor Who Found Jesus After Asia’s Most Infamous Sex Scandal

Kho’s friend Dioceldo Sy, owner of Ever Bilena cosmetics, had an extra ticket to Zacharias’ talk that night.

Having read Zacharias’ book Has Christianity Failed You? as part of his research before choosing to become an atheist years ago, Kho also knew the author’s background as an engaging writer and leading Christian apologist.

Soon after Zacharias’ talk about the truth behind the Gospels, Kho’s hand was the first to be raised with a question.

“I asked a question that soon turned into a confession,” Kho said.

As Zacharias recalled, Kho said that he was “living with pain, shame and guilt.”

“Tears were running down his face,” said Zacharias. “He began by asking me what meaning can he find in life. That was where the dialogue between us began.”

Zacharias had no idea who Kho was and didn’t know his story. He told his staff later that Kho looked like a man made for the movies and yet he was talking about life’s meaninglessness.

Zacharias is fond of quoting a line from theologian G.K. Chesterton; “Meaninglessness doesn’t come from being weary of pain. Rather, it comes from being weary of pleasure.” Kho personified that insight.

Hayden Kho Prepares for Ministry

Kho started meeting often with Zacharias. He took time off from his job and put aside his acting projects to travel the world attending many of Zacharias’ events. And after each, he had plenty of questions.

Zacharias said, “He longed for hope, and I told him God is the only one big enough to change a person’s heart and begin anew.”

Kho says he plans to be active in Zacharias’ ministry. In the meantime, he regularly attends Sunday service at the Christian Commission Fellowship and also gives testimonies about his life before groups both small and large.

And he talks about his newfound beliefs on social media, even in the face of ridicule and personal attacks.

In that Instagram post that gained so much reaction, Kho wrote in the caption:

“‘There’s more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact.’ As written in Scripture, ‘The two become one.’ Since we want to become spiritually one with the Master, we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever—the kind of sex that can never ‘become one.’

“There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others. In sexual sin we violate the sacredness of our own bodies, these bodies that were made for God-given and God-modeled love, for ‘becoming one’ with another.”

The celebrity plastic surgeon has turned his life around and that’s no joke.

Kho says his former life of sex, drugs and suicide can now described by forgiveness, hope and joy.
