The Certainty of the World's Conversion

This article by Rev. J.L. Wilson (1809-1886), PCUS missionary to W. Africa, was published in The Southern Presbyterian Review, December 1848.

"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." This stern declaration wrung from the disciples of Christ the earnest inquiry, "Who then can be saved?" To this the Savior replies, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." In other words, what is impossible with men is possible with God. What we can never effect by our own unaided efforts, may easily be achieved by throwing ourselves upon the almighty power of Jehovah.
