Treasured Thoughts (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Treasured Thoughts Mr. Winkley owes more for aid in establishing his own standard of thorough honesty and moral con sistency than perhaps to any other person. From his eighth year Mr. Winkley was an interested attendant upon the meeting for religious inquiries. Having been trained in the then common idea of sudden conversions, and not being able, though a diligent seeker therefor, to realize any such instant change, he continued with unabated interest to hope for it until his fourteenth year. The hymns that he had learned, together with the theological atmosphere he breathed, led him to think with dread of the doom which awaited the unconverted after death. In his fourteenth year, during a revival, he came to the conclusion that no 'conversion' was to be allowed him, and after a great deal of thought and feeling he decided simply to ask pardon for all the errors of the past, and to consecrate his future life to the love and service of God and man, - leaving all else to the Heavenly Father. A man may grow sceptical concerning theological views, he may even become a positive unbeliever 5 but no one can ques tion the reality of such an experience as this. He was soon after received into the Orthodox church, where he continued to be interested in Sunday-school work, in tract distribution, and in other such mission ary effort as a boy may engage. Soon after his union with' the church he left home. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
