Hank, campbell didnt believe in a know so Salvation based on feelings. WHY DONT YOU QUESTION THAT TYPE OF ATTITUDE?<quoted text>
How are your sins forgiven, Preston???
Do you wish them away???
Do you write them down and put them in a bottle and send them by the seas???
Do you pray them away???
Do you hope that your sins will just go away and leave you alone???
How do you die to all of these sins???
then you would know what we Christians already know.
I knew that I was saved at that altar on 8/25/82 around 9:00 on a Wed night. How? because I felt(something that campbell says you cant have)the Blood of Jesus, and I [felt] and [knew]that I was a different person when I stood up, and others [knew} that God had done a work on me and inside of me.
now the Bible says that old things are passed away and all things become new.
so that means that what I used to do, I wouldnt do again, AND I HAVENT.
and 9 months and three days later, I was Baptised in Water.
I HAD SOMETHING TO PROVE TO PEOPLE, THAT I HAD REALLY BEEN SAVED, IT WASNT JUST EMOTIONAL, IT WAS REAL. and so I grew in Grace and Knowledge of the Lord, and all of the people around here [knew] that God had done a work in me.and in may 1983, I preached my first Sermon.
old things had surely passed away, from being a vile sinner into becoming a minister of the Gospel.
