Pascal's experience of God: something many modern Christians miss entirely

Today I want to share with you the record of a remarkable experience of God had by Pascal. The following quote is a translation of a document found sewn into his clothing after his death. The original French can be found at the link below.The quote that follows is credited by John Piper with having … [Read more...]
