Pointed Reminders

Bill Crews once observed in an article entitled “Nothing to Hide”:

  • If a man has some printed money but is not willing to have it examined, people think it is counterfeit.
  • If a man is afraid to take a lie detector test, people think he is guilty of crime.
  • If a man conducts a business but is unwilling to let anyone investigate it, folks think he is running a crooked business.

Many preachers teach doctrines that they will under no circumstances test or allow to be tested by the Bible. However, millions of people will accept them as upright, honest teachers of the truth, and will risk their salvation upon them. What makes the difference? The Bible instructs us to try the teachers (1 John 4.1). The truth never fears investigation! It has nothing to hide!
