This man, who has been serving the Lord now since 1972 and is still in the bus ministry. Amazing. He is still in the same church I pastored over thirty years ago. He still wants to see people saved.
This makes me concern myself as a preacher! How many times have I been a part of this process. I believed as long as I could present the Roman Road to someone, and they responded to the verses and prayed a prayer they would be saved.
From 1963-1980 when I was teaching and preaching this was my belief. I sometimes wonder about those who I believed were saved and were not really saved.
Can a person be saved by the Roman Road? Very much so, that is how a person is saved. Can a person be saved if they truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour, and that they are a sinner, and need to be forgiven? YES.
Having seen my friend from Madison Baptist this week, and after 35 years, you know by his life and testimony that he has been saved. How do you know that?
The question is: WHAT HAPPENS IN THE NEW BIRTH? That is, what happens to a person when they are truly born again, have been truly saved, and they become a Christian?
