Evangelism for All Time, Part 3: Discerning God’s Voice

In the prior post I told of an encounter I had on an airplane with a world traveler. Thinking I was following God’s leading toward a spiritual turn in the convo, the traveler nevertheless stopped me out cold by declaring himself an atheist. I was confused.
