Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 4 March 30, 1938

The Evidence

The Evidence.

"As evidence for his faith the Christian can say the essence of my faith, is that God has taken hold of me and I have answered Him. I know something has happened and that Is the basis of my faith that then there is a God. This "something" has quite visible manifestations and knowable results. My life [unclear: has] been completely changed.

"The Christian faith is [unclear: proved] by the fact that when a person embraces Christianity, he knows that it is God has got hold of him. And included in that experience, he knows that it is God in Christ. Christ can change men and human nature and give a new purpose and raise a man from the depths of despair to the heights of joy. When that happens to a person, the truth of Christianity is confirmed to him.

"There may be some or you here who find this thought obscure. The reason you do not understand this change is that you have not acceded to God's demands. God will change your whole life, but only if you desire Him to. You must desire this so much that you are willing to give up your independence, perhaps your best friends, and your whole life, and let Him run your life for you That." concluded Mr. Linton. "is revolution That is the solution of the world's problems."
