Proof Positive

The late Dr. Pentecost, a well-known American Bible teacher and lecturer, was introduced to an outspoken infidel. This unbeliever scoffed at the idea of anyone putting faith in the Bible. He said, "A good many books of the Bible have no name of the writers attached to them. How then can you have any confidence in a book whose authorship is so uncertain, and the subject of so much dispute?"
"Who wrote the multiplication table?" asked Dr. Pentecost.
"I don't know," replied the infidel.
"What a man you are," exclaimed Dr. Pentecost. "You believe it and use it, and yet don't know who was the author of it."
The infidel had no immediate reply. He saw his difficulty; but finally discerning, as he thought, a way out, he exclaimed triumphantly: "But the multiplication table works!"
"Doubtless," replied Dr. Pentecost. "And so does the Bible. It works!"
How true this is! Tens of thousands, even millions of true Christians all over the world and down the centuries, have attested to that. "The Gospel... is the POWER of God unto salvation to every one that believeth." Rom. 1:1616For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (Romans 1:16). Everyone without exception who has really trusted the Savior can testify to the truth of this. It works!
Reader, have you been introduced to real Christianity? Either it is true or false. If true, you cannot afford to neglect it. If you claim it is false, how can you explain that when the Lord Jesus is received in human lives, and the Bible is believed and practiced in those lives, it produces men and women who show forth the pure and holy precepts of the living Word of God? A real Christian is ever seeking the salvation and the blessing of others.
But remember! Salvation is by FAITH, faith in the Savior who died on the cross that your sins might be forgiven. REMEMBER: eternal life is a GIFT, and you cannot work to earn a gift. You can only receive it with thanksgiving. "The gospel of Christ... is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth." Rom. 1:1616For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (Romans 1:16).
