|“I’m Glad I Settled It Last Night” | Herbert M. Riggle, 1918||Warning|
A miner came to the altar seeking Christ.... After more than an hour of seeking, the minister dismissed the congregation, while he himself remained with the seeker. After a long time he suggested that they go home.... But the penitent man would not be put off.

|Ishmael | Mark P. Spinks||Idolatry|
