Should you really settle on a basic spiritual belief this quickly
? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say some of these new converts are good targets for door-to-door encyclopedia and Ginsu knife sales:
Doorsteps across the Midstate became altars of salvation for more than 400 people during a one-day evangelism blitz by Southern Baptists challenged to leave their comfort zones and boldly witness to strangers.
In all, the Bible-toting volunteers visited more than 41,600 homes, and about 4,500 people wanted to discuss the Gospel or spiritual issues, Johnston said. According to preliminary figures, 449 were converted on their doorsteps.
Incidentally, note the reverent tone, bordering on outright awe, of the story.
