Eric Liddell - Olympic Athlete and Missionary to China

Eric Liddell is most widely known for his refusal to run on Sunday in the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris. A committed Christian, Liddell withdrew from his strongest event, the 100 meters – a decision that would years later make him the subject of the Oscar-winning film "Chariots of Fire." As an alternative, Liddell registered to run in the 400 meters. Just moments before the race, an American handed him a piece of paper on which was written a passage from 1 Samuel 2:30, "Those who honour me I will honour." Liddell ran the race with the verse in his hand and claimed Olympic Gold and new world record with a time of 47.6 seconds. When Eric described his race plan, he said, "The secret of my success over the 400 meters is that I run the first 200 meters as fast as I can. Then, for the second 200 meters, with God's help, I run faster."

The Anatomy of Sin's Seduction

Deception isn't just a fact of life swirling around us; it is a fact of life inside us. The deceiver disguises what is undesirable and harmful beneath what he thinks we want. He has one goal in mind and is unscrupulous in his pursuit of it. The Bible shows us his tricks and helps us to prepare for when he is on the attack.
