This post is notable for the puerile question posed by a reader:
“Would you be willing to stand in a court of law and say that yes, Jonah did in fact spend three days in the belly of a great fish?”
Oh, isn’t he smart! But let’s turn the question around a little. Would you be willing to stand with your court of law before the judgment seat of God and say yes, the Bible is a work of fiction?
But first you have to swear–usually on the Bible–to tell the truth.
Well, hey, let’s all be Smart and elevate our own “courts of law,” complete with corrupt and ignorant judges, shyster lawyers, and perjured witnesses to a status higher than God’s! Even giving us credit for honestly trying to do our best, it really isn’t good enough.
That’s why we need a Savior.
And that’s why we’ve got one.
