To Plain to Explain

  There are some things so self-evident that explanation ought not even be expected. When on the wrong road continuing on that road we will not  reach the destination. Does that need explaining? Borrowing more money and spending it will not get us out of debt. Nobody believes that but stupid liberal politicians. A life of sin will not bring us into favor with God. How do you make that clearer. Salvation is in Christ and no other (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). How many words does it take to explain that?

  Misunderstanding is often a problem. But probably the greater problem is not misunderstanding but stubborn determination to "do your own thing" regardless of the consequences. Pride is a deadly disease. Foolishness binds us to defeat. How could anyone make that easier to understand?
