Converted, Yet with Doubts and Fears
Matthew 8:25–26; Mark 4:38–40; Luke 8:24–25
Contend to the death for the truth, that no man is a true Christian who is not converted, and is not a holy man. But allow that a man may be converted, have a new heart, and be a holy man, and yet be liable to infirmity, doubts, and fears.
