Change of Heart

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart divides the heath/soul of an individual into four categories or components: Intellect, Affections, Will, Conscience. The apparent argument is that all four components must be taught and changed before a person can truly become a christian. "All the heart needs teaching: intellect only--critic, emotions only--fanatic, will alone--prejudice." "Intellect changed by testimony...affections changed by evidence...will changed by thinking on these...these all lead to obedience...faith purifies the heart...repentance changes the life...confession changed the allegiance...baptism puts one into changed state."

The Christian Race

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This unusually graphic sermon chart gets its inspiration from II Timothy 4:7, describing the Christian's walk as a race. The church is depicted as an arena, with Christians on the track--some persevering and some falling to various doubts and temptations. Individuals outside of the arena represent the "rest of the world" that is outside the church. On an interesting note, all individuals drawn are caucasian males. It is conceivable that this chart was made for a week-long meeting.
