Sermon Illustrations

Swindoll notes: Dr. Wilbur Penfeld, director of the Montreal Neurological Institute, said in a report to the Smithsonian Institute:

Your brain contains a permanent record of your past that is like a single continuous strip of moving film, complete with sound track. The film library records your whole waking life from childhood on. You can live again those scenes from your past, one at a time, when a surgeon places a gentle electrical current and applies it to a certain point on the temporal cortex of your brain. As you relive the scenes from your past, you feel exactly the same emotions you did during the original experience.

Think of that! Could it be that the human race will be confronted with this irrefutable record at the judgment of God? Indeed (Living on the Ragged Edge, page 373).
