This Day in Christian History: April 24
April 24, 387: Augustine of Hippo is Baptized
|Augustine of Hippo|
Not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying, but put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill the lusts thereof.
This was the beginning of his transformation. He wrote about his conversion in Confessions, which has become a classic of Christian theology.
Augustine went on to become the Biship of Hippo, and influenced much of Western Christianity.
