    During the researching of this diary, the most eye opening fact I uncovered was the simple one that Paul did not tell about his miracle to gentile audiences. He adapted his speech to his audience, and so, when he told the story, instead of trying to show how God had lifted him from a low state to an exalted one, he shows how he had given up a high state for a low one because of the truth of Jesus.

    In other words, the real "witnessing" along the lines of Paul would be,

    After I graduated from Harvard and got my Wharton MBA, I was a bank president, making $500,000 a year. I had three homes in the U.S. and two different vacation homes. Then, one day, I was struck blind. I kept on about my business, of course. Then I saw Jesus, and he asked why I would not give him any food. I told him that there were Food Stamps for people like that. Then I realized that he meant that I needed to actually care about people. My sight returned, and I was baptised. I sold all I had and gave it to the needy, and I've been preaching ever since.
    That seems like it would be a pretty effective testimony.

    Everyone's innocent of some crime.
