If you have the truth and it’s a matter of life or death, you had better be assertive. For example, I do a tremendous amount of flying. It has been my observation that pilots are some of the most arrogant people you would ever want to meet. First of all, in all my years of air travel they have never once let me fly the plane. They think they can fly it better than anybody else. Secondly, they are so hung up on the instrument panel, they think you can only use one lever to do one thing. You can’t use one lever to do five things; you can only use one lever to do one thing. Thirdly, if there is a landing strip 50’ wide in a field five miles wide, they insist on landing on that one little landing strip. They are some of the most arrogant, self-centered people you would ever want to meet. And am I ever glad they are The last thing I want when I step on a plane is a pilot who says, "I flew the plane yesterday. Who’d like to fly it today?" The last thing I want when I step on a plane is a pilot who looks at the instrument panel and says, "One, two, three. Which will it be?" The last thing I want when I step on a plane is a pilot who approaches a landing strip and says, "Yesterday I landed over there and went that way. Today I’ll land over here and go that way." If you have the truth and it’s a matter of life or death, you had better be unyielding. The reason Christ says, "I am the way, the truth and the life" is because He is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him.
