Pastor Eric Dammann, recently used a personal illustration to demonstrate that God can even use a person’s mistakes by telling about an event more than a dozen years ago when he was a youth worker. He punched a smart alec teenager in the chest, knocking him to the ground. He then said to the child he’d just abused, ‘Ben, when are you going to stop playing games with God?’ Pastor Dammann claims that the child converted to Christianity on the spot.—Jim L. Wilson

Titus 1:7 (NKJV) (7) For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money,
