Friday Humor: “Don’t Fill Him, Lord…” by R.C. Sproul

Series: Friday Humor #10

We know people who have been “converted” many times. Every time there is a church revival they go to the altar and get “saved.” One minister told of a man in his congregation who had been “saved” seventeen times. During a revival meeting the evangelist made an altar call for all who wanted to be filled with the Spirit. The man who had been converted so often made his way toward the altar again. A woman from the congregation shouted, “Don’t fill him, Lord. He leaks!” … Those who become “unconverted” were never converted in the first place. – R.C. Sproul from a sermon.
