After reading the posts concerning; True and False Conversion. The following is oftered for your judgement-I was saved at an altar call in a Southern Baptist church at the age of 21. And while I felt secure in my salvation, for the next 20 years I did not grow in the Lord. Then after reading some books that my wife had purchased from a Dr.. Estep I suddenly became interested in the word of God. It was then that I began a period of intense Bible study which continues to this day. I graduated from college with a major in education and minors in both the Old and NewTestaments . So I had some basic knowledge of the Bible. It was at this time that I begin to pray about becoming a soulwinner . At first I encountered many difficulties, such as, going to someone to witness too and in the middle of that witness beginning to weep uncontrollablely. Naturally they would try to comfort me and eventually I would leave knowing full well that they were just as lost as when I first came. At this time I ask God in prayer." Father please give me a burden for lost souls?" And He did ! Looking back I believe the Lord must have said," Here have a full bowl"! for the answer has been truly amazing. I have seen healings, incredible miracles and have seen lifes completely transformed turned around and headed in the opposite (Heavenly )direction . For many years I averaged leading about one person in a sinners prayer per day. For five years I had a weekly radio program entitled " A Witness" . I had originally decided to name the radio program "The Witness" but one day while praying about the program the Holy Spirit said to me don't say, "The Witness" say, "A Witness" and so I did. I went on missionary trips to Mexico,to England and to China. In China I only heard 87 people accept the the Lord Jesus Christ in a six-month period of time. But in Mexico and England working in the street I saw the Lord save many more . Realizing that one-on-one soulwinning was the most effective I begin to witness to as many people as possible during the day and my averages per day begin to go up... One day when I was praying ; the Holy Spirit gave me an idea. Why not give my classic automobile away? I had a 1980 Cadillac ( this was in 2000 ) in great condition. I immediately put a sign on the car that said, " FREE CHANCE TO WIN THIS CAR " and began to take it to fares and carnivals and meetings of all kinds. After praying with over 5000 people in eight months a drawing was held and I gave the car away. In order to continue this kind of witnessing I then purchased a small motorbike and this time I led over 3000, mostly young people, in a sinner's prayer before having a drawing and giving the bike anyway. This past summer I used a little different approach. This time I gave away five hundred dollars cash to the winner of the draw. And over 2700 persons prayed this summer. The witnessing takes place in the following manner; a person sees the sign and comes to the table to sign up for the prize . It is while filling out their free ticket that I ask them what do you think I'm doing this for and of course most answer I don't have any idea. I then say, I'm doing this in order to ask you a question. I then witness to them,and finish by asking them do you want to call on the name Lord Jesus Christ to save your soul? When they say yes, as over 75 percent do , I then lead them in the sinner's prayer. I am asking you to comment on this letter in any manner you desire to.------------------Arthur Poorman P.S.
