Take it or Leave it

E-mail Print PDF

Is this said of God's Word? Surely not! The Bible humbles or hard­ens the human heart. "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already..." If we hear it but do not do what it says, we deceive ourselves. It is not like Homer or Shakespeare. We do not go away the same after we have heard the Word of God. We have to do something about its message-these words will some day reveal our destiny. We cannot leave it alone.
But why is this so? Either it is or it is not the Word of God, and either all of it is the Word of God or we never can be sure of any of it. It is either absolute or obsolete. If we have to start changing this verse, toning down that, apologizing for this and making allowances for that, we might as well give it up. But we can be certain that the Bible is the Word of God. So we must take it as it is, or cast it aside as nonsense.
