Maybe I Don’t Have Enough Sense To Be Discouraged
January 1, 2006
Author: Moishe Rosen

Some enemies of the gospel want us to be discouraged from passing out our tracts in public places. Even some quasi-governmental bodies are attempting to discourage us.

Influences

In my childhood my mother warned me, "Never talk to strangers." The distinctives of a stranger were not very clear at the time.

The Pieces Finally Fit
Author: Stan Meyer

Spiritual issues were always of interest to Solomon. Growing up in Montreal and beholding the religious diversity there, he always questioned the meaning of life. In this mainly Catholic city Solomon and his Jewish family were a minority. A Christian friend first got him thinking about God and Satan. The two opposites seemed to mesmerize…
