    Every soul that comes to Christ exists as a blessing, but which one of the following would REALLY make your eyes pop out like pingpong balls if they decided to repent and preach the Word of God:

    1. Osama Bin Laden
    2. Saddam Hussein
    3. The Dalai Lama
    4. Crown Prince Abdullah (Ruler of Saudi Arabia)
    5. Louis Farrakhan

    Can I add a few to the list?

    6) Hillary Clinton
    7) Gloria Steinham

    Can you imagine what would happen if these two ladies received Christ as their saviour, and devoted their lives for Christ?

    numbers 3, 4, and 5, because of the effect it would have on their followers.

    Last I checked Sen. Clinton was a committed Christian. As a matter of fact, I think she attributes her interest in progressive social causes to her faith (as do I ;) - which is why I noticed it when I read it [​IMG] ).

    Please cite the things about Hillary that are Christlike. BTW, Jesus didn't espouse "progressive social causes" nor the idea that man's gov't should be his source of salvation, temporal or otherwise.

    #3. It would require a total shift of worldview.

    I would be surprised and delighted for all of them, but selections #1 and #2 would need to do all of their preaching from a prison cell because of their crimes against humanity.

    The evidence of their newfound faith would be to make arrangements to surrender themselves immediately to the proper authorities.

    My pick would be the former POTUS W J C!

    With the personality to make a nation (many anyway) follow him as they did, can you just imagine the positive influence he would have over his "worshipers"!? [​IMG]

    Then on the other hand, should he suddenly become a committed Christian, his "worshipers" would most likely turn on him just as the Pharisees did Paul. :confused:

    Rev, Joshua, You have got to be kidding. Hillary is not close to being a Christian and I have my doubts she is even saved. You can't whore around with men(even with a husband like Bill) and be a christian, you can't support baby killing and be a Christian and you can't promote sodomy and be a Christian.

    As one Marine said it, (referring to #1 and #2), they'd better give their hearts to Jesus, because if we catch them, their butts belong to us!

    My DI said something similar a few times...

    A few years ago wasn't there a big story about an evangelist from Texas leading Manuel Noriega to the Lord whilst Noriega was incarcerated in a Miami jail?

    Right now, number 3 would be great. That would make such an impact, you'd probably feel it halfway around the globe. It's mind-boggling trying to witness to the eastern-philosophical-new age-I am god-type people.

    Yeah, Wygal. The conversion of the Dalai Lama would simply...rock this planet like a rapper's delight.

    I...can't even imagine...it would may be tantamount to the fall of the Roman Empire...or..even more impressive...compare to the conversion of Paul? :eek: Only because it would open up soooooooo many ears of such a BIG population of lost souls like never before...
    ...gosh... :eek:

    Probably so, but would it not feel wonderful if Hussein and bin Laden were treated like Paul after his conversion? They didn't put him in jail, but he did get somewhat ostracized by the other apostles (or "superapostles" as he put it in the NIV). Eventually, they saw Paul's legitimacy.

    Let's keep praying for both Saddam and Osama that they will one day come on Christ's side.
