Roger J. Morneau (18 April 1925 – 22 September 1998)[1] was a Christian author who wrote on prayer and the supernatural. He was a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Biography[edit]

Morneau was born in 1925 in Quebec, Canada.[2] He was born into a very religious family where his parents were devout French Canadian Catholics;[3] two of his aunts were nuns, and one uncle was a priest.[4] As a youth Roger experienced the passing of his mother, and disillusionment in God he later claimed stemmed from teachings in Catholic books and the Church.[5] He claimed to have been concerned with teaching that outside of the Roman Catholic Church, there is no salvation[6] and felt he could not understand a God that would torture people eternally in hell.

As a young adult, Roger was introduced to spiritualism through a friend, and nearly joined a secret order of spirit worshipers who claimed to be the "elite"[7] and were servants of Lucifier himself. Before Roger was to make a full commitment, however, he asked a Seventh-day Adventist co-worker, Cyril Grosse, if he would go over some Bible studies with him.[8] This was what Roger needed to turn away from the realm of spiritualism and start his studies of Christ as an Adventist. In defiance to a bounty for his head of $10,000[9] (approximately $126,000[10] in 2012's US dollars), Roger became a Christian in the Adventist Church in 1946. In 1947, he married Hilda, a licensed vocational nurse in Montreal, and worked many years in telephone advertising sales. In 1984, a virus destroyed part of his heart muscle, giving him cardiomyopathy for the rest of his life. Morneau died in 1998.
