A converted cannibal on a South Sea island was sitting by a large pot reading his Bible. An anthropologist saw him and was curious as to what he was doing. He approached the native and said, "What are you doing?" The ex-cannibal replied, "I'm reading the Bible." The anthropologist then said, "Don't you know that modern man has rejected that book?" The cannibal looked him over and said, "Sir, if it weren't for this book, you'd be in that pot."
Conversion is like changing your car from petrol to LPG. You've changed from one source of power to another. But it's still a car.
