In his classic novel, “The Robe,” Lloyd C. Douglas has a character called Marcellus, who had become enamored of Jesus.
He wrote letters to his fiancé Diana in Rome. He told her about Jesus’ teachings, about his miracles, about his crucifixion, and then about his resurrection.
Finally he informed her that he had decided to become a disciple of Jesus. A God Nod
In her letter of response, Diana said, “What I feared was that it might affect you. It is a beautiful story. Let it remain so. We don’t have to do anything about it, do we?”
Oh yes, we do, Diana.
