The Cliff

Here’s how the warnings in the Bible work, the “IF” s :

X – IF you go over the cliff you will fall down and die.

Y – Ha! No problem! I’m not planning on going over the cliff!

X – Good! That’s very wise, because IF you did you would die.

Y – No, it doesn’t apply to me, because it won’t happen.

X – But IF you did go over the cliff you would die.

Y – But it won’t happen, so end of story.

X – But IF it did happen you would die.

Y – I don’t believe it is possible that I could go over the cliff.

X – Whether you believe it is possible or not doesn’t change the fact that IF you did you would fie.

Y – I don’t want to dwell on negatives!

X – Good! And IF you go over the cliff you will die.

Y – I trust God will keep me from going over the cliff!

X – Great! So do I! And IF you go over the cliff, using your freedom to choose, then you will die.

Y – This is annoying! Why do you always add, IF you go over the cliff you will die??

X – Because IF you go over the cliff you will die.

Y – The warnings in the Bible are to unbelievers, not believers! Believers never need to be warned about going over the cliff, because they can’t!

X – IF they go over the cliff they will die. The cliff doesn’t discriminate between “believers” and unbelievers. IF you go over the cliff you will die.

(Person Y is in denial of the reality of the warnings in Scripture, thinking they only apply to non-Christians)
