Growing up in a Christian environment does not guarantee salvation. Neither does a Christian education. One can learn the correct vocabulary and be unaware of the need for personal salvation through Christ. An outwardly moral life can fool others for years. Such was the case for Carl Woodbury. Grandson of a Baptist preacher, he grew up in a church and was baptized as a boy. However, it was a worldly church, and he had no conviction of sin and was never saved. He later entered the ministry and attended three theologically liberal, modernistic colleges. Studying modernistic teachings left his soul unsatisfied. He saw that only a fundamentalist view of the authority of the Bible is an adequate basis for truth. As he testifies, "The truth drove me to fundamentalism." His story shockingly reveals the unbelief propagated at many supposedly Christian schools even many decades ago. It also shows the mighty power of the Gospel to win an honest heart.
