Excerpt from Forward...
One of my favorite characters is Uncle Buddy Robinson, the Methodist preacher who later became Nazarene and emphasized what he called "the second blessing." Referring to the Spirit-filled life, one preacher said, "We argue over the right expression and die for a lack of the experience." Whatever you call it, Uncle Bud had it! ...
While I do not agree with Uncle Bud on every doctrinal point, I do appreciate his ministry and his radiant life. He believed in the complete eradication of the old nature, and we disagree with that teaching. But if the old nature could be eradicated, I would have to agree that Uncle Buddy's was more nearly eradicated than my own....
The pot said,
Lives of great men all remind us
We too, can make our lives sublime
And in passing leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.
Uncle Buddy might have said, 'Everybody leaves footprints on the sands of time. Some leave the mark of a great soul (sole), and some others only leave the mark of a heel." Uncle Bud himself left the mark of a great soul.
