What If the Bible Is True?
What if the Bible is true and the Word of God really is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword? What if the Bible is true and the Word of God really does what it says. What if the Bible is true, perhaps instead of giving peaceful releases to get people off our roster because we don't want to deal with them, we should actually ban them from the Altar, perhaps we should use the power of the keys given in John 20? What if we preached to them that their sin of absence, of breaking the third commandment is retained and that they are to refrain from the sacrament until they repent. What if the Bible were true, and we were to do that, and they went somewhere else? That they went somewhere else and took the sacrament, but all the while the heard ringing in their ears the Word spoken by the pastor as from God himself? The Bible is true. What if we were to take it seriously? What if we believed it? What if?
