In the late 1800’s into the days of the Great Depression, there was a great evangelist that caught the imagination of the people. He was known not just as a great speaker but a great baseball player... his name was Billy Sunday.

One wouldn’t say that he stood in the pulpit, for he would range the stage pleading with people to understand the power of God and the grace of Christ.

At one point, he slid across the stage as if sliding into home plate to illustrate that becoming a Christian was much like sliding into home and God calling us safe.

Speaking on sin, Sunday said:

"I’m against sin. I’ll kick it as long as I’ve a foot, I’ll fight it as long as I have a fist, I’ll butt it as long as I have a head, I’ll bite it as long as I have a tooth. And when I’m old, and footless and fistless and toothless... I’ll gum it (pause…) until I go home to Glory and it goes home to perdition!"
