MIAMI, FLORIDA - After many years of showing no interest in loving and serving Christ, a Southern Baptist Pastor was finally able to convince the young man to say a prayer.

"He has been resistant", the pastor said. "But we finally got him to repeat a prayer after us, thus guaranteeing him eternal life and a home in heaven, no matter what happens."

The pastor and the young man's parents were thrilled, knowing that he finally gave in and said words his family has been wanting him to say for years.

"He has everlasting life. No one can pluck him from the Father's hand", the pastor added.

UPDATE:

It's been months now since the young man said that prayer. He continues to show no interest in loving and serving Christ. But his pastor and parents are confident that he is saved.
