Funny Way to Make A Serious to Point
Here’s a short, but good and funny article from Harry Middleton of the Lebanon Road church in Nashville, TN.
It’s titled: Search the scriptures!!! I thought someone may want to use it for a reference or a bulletin article.
Great truths may sometimes be stated in amusing ways. I found the following statement of truth amusing and thought provoking. It is taken from “Wells of Thought.”
Jacob Ditzler and J. S. Sweeny were having a debate on the scriptural mode of baptism. Ditzler showed a secondary meaning of the word BAPTIZE to wash or sprinkle.
In reply, brother Sweeny showed that a secondary meaning of BELIEVE was to have an opinion and a secondary meaning of SAVE was to be pickled.
Then he gave the resulting translation of Mark 16:16, “He that hath an opinion and is sprinkled shall be pickled.”
He then raised the question, “Is it our aim to see what we can make out of the scriptures, or is it to find out what God has said?”
