            Time to get back to Athens now. I mentioned before how impressed I was of the then beautiful city. Now I will come to the Evangelical churches. The number of them and the size of some, as well as some of the preachers, lifted me up to heaven. Here I heard for the first time clear evangelistic preaching. That kind of preaching made me realize my sinfulness and the need of repenting and receiving Christ as my personal Savior in order to be saved. One Sunday evening at a suburban church the sermon gave me the mercy shot. The subject was the question Elijah asked  the backslidden people of Israel in the days of Ahab and Jezebel as he was giving the battle against the prophets of Baal on Carmel: «How long halt ye between two opinions? If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him (1Kings 18:21). Though my case wasn't like that, I didn't halt between two or more opinions, yet the repeated appeals of the preacher for immediate decision touched my heart deeply and as I was going home I talked to myself saying: «That is it.

            I was a high school student then, in my eleventh grade. And those were the days of Easter vacation. I don't know why, but I had stayed home alone. It was Good Friday and the church bells tolled plaintively as the Greek Orthodox churches reenact the crucifixion of Jesus on that day. I had rather conflicting feelings in my heart and wanted to vent them out by doing something. It was that period of my life, which most of us go through, that I liked to draw. My preference was boats of all sorts. As I searched through my papers to find the sheets I wanted, I came accross a tract entitled "If we neglect." I picked it up right away and eagerly started reading it. The track didn't come before me by accident, God brought it. As I read I was especially impressed by two illustrations the writer used.

The power of the gospel is seen in transformed lives. Man is born a slave to sin. Religion, philosophy, ethics, good works, and whatever else one might think of, cannot deliver him. Only faith in the gospel of Christ "which is the power of God unto salvation" can.
