SOUND THEOLOGY


In a Peanuts cartoon Lucy and Linus are staring out the window, watching it rain. Lucy says, "Boy! Look at it pour. What if it floods the whole world?"


Linus, "It won't. In Gen. 9, God promised Noah that would never happen again. The sign of that promise is the rainbow."


Lucy, turning back to the window with a big smile, says, "You've taken a great load off my mind."


Linus, "Sound theology has a way of doing that."



Sound theology says God always keeps His promises!
