Scripture references

1 Corinthians 10:23 (ASV 1901)

Galatians 5:16 (ASV 1901)

D. E. Hoste gave up the habit of smoking, a habit that threatened to stand between him and the Lord after his conversion.
New converts described how accepting Christ into their lives led to a change in lifestyle; some stop smoking, others stopped cockfights, and others stopped gambling. The change in their lives was clear that it led others to Christ.
