A Devastating Question (31 min)

John Toisma was born into a religious home in the Netherlands in 1947. Emigrating as a young lad to British Columbia, Canada, John continued to be religiously minded, but was not saved. His mother died very tragically when John was 15. Then a preacher from a local Gospel Hall by the name of Lou Swaan contacted John and got him out to a gospel meeting. Afterwards, Lou asked him if he had ever been born again. John said “Yes”, and proceeded to relate a story from his life where God had healed him in answer to prayer. Lou Swaan followed up with a devastating question: “How long, before that event, were you a lost sinner on the way to hell?”. John was shocked. He had never been a sinner on the way to hell! Lou’s question had done its work. It had exposed the fact that John had never been born again: but John still resisted and, for a time, went the other way. Follow his story as the Lord worked in his life, finally saving him in 1967 through the words of John 3:36.
