One of my pet peeves is a bumper sticker. It reads; "God said it, I believe it and that ends it."
Now many of you may think that is a reasonable statement. I, on the other hand, have a problem with it--you see, once God says it, THAT ends it. THAT makes it truth. Whether or not I believe it is of no consequence. My belief has no bearing in the truth of the matter. Truth is truth, and it is promulgated by the will and testimony of God, not by the beliefs of those that choose whether or not to follow Him. It is this attitude about Scripture that is the problem. We have come to think that our belief is what makes something true or not.
