1952 “Only Forgotten Son”
Dr. Walter L. Wilson tells the story of a woman who had attended one of his meetings and waited after the service for spiritual help. When he asked her if she could quote any part of the Scripture, she said that she had once learned John 3:16 in Sunday School. He then asked her to quote it. She recited: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only forgotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Noticing that she had said “forgotten” for “begotten,” he said, “Do you know why God forgot his Son?” She said, “No, I don’t.” And Dr. Wilson said: “It was because he wanted to remember you.”
Then Dr. Wilson led her to a knowledge of Christ as Saviour.
