Not Ashamed of the Gospel
29 November 2020 AM – Romans 1:16 – Witnessing – Scott Childs
Introduction: Alex Dunlap was the founder and director of The Conversion Center in Havertown, Pennsylvania USA which was a ministry and halfway house for converted Catholic Priests. He was very bold in his witness for the Lord. He told of one time that he went into a catholic church where people were lined up to go to the confession booth. He got in line and when his turn came he stepped into the box where he was to make his confession to the priest through a small hole in the wall. The priest asked him what his sin was and he said, “I have lost faith in the catholic church and this is why.” Then he proceeded to compare what the catholic church taught and what the Bible said as he witnessed though this little hole. (By Lou Nicholes – Missionary/Author).
