William T. Barker tells about a machinist that worked at the Ford motor company after it had been first started in Detroit. This machinist over the next few years “borrowed” various tools and parts from the company, which he had never returned. While this practice was not condoned it was more or less tolerated by the management because they all did the same thing. This machinist however yielded his life to Christ and was baptized and took the change seriously! The very next morning he arrived at work loaded down with all the tools and parts he had taken from the company. He explained to the foreman that he had taken these things, that he knew it was wrong and he hoped he’d be forgiven and explained about his conversion. The foreman was so impressed that he cables Henry Ford himself, who was visiting a new European plant, and explained the whole situation in detail. Immediately Henry Ford cabled back: “Do this at once. Damn up the Detroit river and Baptize the entire city!”
