The Christian Experience

A 21st century lay-Christian examines his faith

 

  

E. B. Alston

“Truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.” St. Augustine.

      In the spring of 1946, when I was 12-years–old, I was baptized in Porter Creek, downstream from the wooden bridge on Porter Road. It was close to Hollister, North Carolina. Reverend Wiley Guthrie baptized me along with my cousin Joseph Powell and our classmate and friend, Lil Shearin. Most of my extended family observed from the bridge. My Aunt Mary was pleased and said so when she hugged me, wet clothes and all. Since then I have continued to study Christianity. I owe a lot to St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, John Milton, G. K. Chesterton, Samuel Johnson, C. S. Lewis, Mortimer Adler, and many others. This is a brief summary of what I have learned.
