Setting Priorities

“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.”

– C.S. Lewis

A girl in my leadership class mentioned that she considers herself a Christian, but believes the Bible is full of errors. I tried to explain to her that the Bible contains no errors, and that it is the word of God. She didn’t understand.

Really though, the Bible is either completely true, or it’s completely untrue. It cannot be anything in between. Because if the Bible contains some errors, how are we to believe that Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead? How are we to determine what is and isn’t true?

There’s no point in calling oneself a Christian if one does not believe the Bible is the word of God. To do so is to be a “lukewarm Christian.” And Jesus hates that.

‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.

Revelation 3: 15-16

So we who believe Christianity is true should make sure we devote ourselves to it. And if you do not believe Christianity is true, you should continue to question it.  God will show you the answers to your questions. And one day you may look back and say, “I’m really glad I asked all those questions…”

The one thing you don’t want to be is lukewarm.
