But Is It Right? 

By Tom Moore 

A man was on a plane and the woman seated next to him learned he was a preacher of the Gospel. She began to bring out all her objections about Christianity. First she spoke of baptism, how it made no sense and how she would not accept it. The preacher replied, "I see, but is it true?" Next she went on to the idea of judgment and hell, how uncivilized and amoral all of it was. "I see how you feel, but is it true?" he replied. She went on to the next topic and then the next, each with the same response. Finally she erupted with her great distaste for everything taught in the Bible, how it wasn't modern or appealing to her way of thinking. As the preacher began to open his mouth one last time, she exclaimed, "Oh, I know, I know, none of that matters. 'Is it true?' you are going to say!" 

Whether the subject is baptism or Hell or salvation by grace, the nonbeliever struggles to accept what the Bible has to say whenever it challenges the personal belief of man. So, mankind naturally rejects these doctrines, not because they are false but because they are distasteful. 

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man; But the end thereof are the ways of death" (Pro. 14:12). "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, and cometh not to the light, lest his works should be reproved. But he that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest, that they have been wrought in God" (Jn. 3:20-21).

 Think About It!
