I’m indebted to R.C. Sproul for this one. A bumper sticker: “God says it. I believe it. That settles it.” What’s wrong with that? It says that the Bible is only true when I believe it. That’s pure nonsense. It should be “God said it. That settles it. I believe it.” Same words, different order. God’s Word is true no matter whether anyone believes it. To say otherwise is to say that God is not God. Whoever came up with the bumper sticker probably had his heart in the right place, but needs a little help with his theology. It leads me to say that there are a lot of people around the world that are saved and going to heaven, even though their doctrine is not entirely accurate. Some doctrinal issues, however, are crucial; and I think there are many people who think they are going to heaven who don’t have a clue as to how to get there. They need help and we have a job to do. Getting bumper stickers right may or may not be a high priority, but we are our brother’s keeper, and that should include our potential brothers.
