Dr. Martin Remembered
Although I never had the pleasure of meeting him... I miss Dr. Walter Martin.
However, through the endless hours of listening intently to his teaching tapes, reading his books, and watching him lovingly "shred" the cults and liberals on the John Ankerberg Show, we shared something special that he wasn't aware of... he became my spiritual father.
Dr. Martin was special. He plunged head first into areas and situations that would turn the average Christian's knees to jell-o.
Filled with the Spirit and armed with God's Word, he admonished us to be unwavering in our defense of the faith, which was "once for all delivered to the saints."
He proved to us from Scripture that Jesus really is "Jehovah God in human form... second person of the Holy Trinity."
He edified the Church, strengthened its members, and warned the body of Christ of the impending danger of the cults.
His uncompromising stance for Christianity and enthusiastic devotion to those in the cults, stands as a beacon for those whose hearts he touched.
Now, Dr. Martin delights in the luxury of heaven... rubbing elbows with the New Testament Apostles, and the Old Testament Prophets, as well as hugging and embracing the many he led to Christ... many whom he never met.
But most of all, Dr. Martin has the honor and privilege of gazing into the beautiful eyes of the One he loved so dearly....
I miss Dr. Martin.
