NORRIS ' BASIC THEOLOGY ..... (From time to time I wish to add articles relating to the basic beliefs of J. Frank Norris)
Dr. Norris could take crucial doctrines and by use of illustration, make the most unlearned person understand the mysteries of the scriptures. This is what made him the great soul-winner throughout his life. For instance, he would lead the sinner in praying that most important prayer ever uttered; "Lord, be merciful to me a sinner". When a sinner, with a humble heart, recognizes the condition of his sinful nature, he has no other place to turn except from pleading for mercy from God the Father. This is the message of the cross, which convicts of sin as the spirit of God moves upon the wicked heart.
