Bottom Line Christianity, Part 2
What did Paul’s journey to Rome have in common with the voyage of the Titanic? Both ships would be lost at sea. As Paul’s voyage goes from turbulent to perilous, the ship’s captain ignores his advice. But despite the appearance that all will be lost, Paul never doubts that even in the midst of storms and tribulations, God has a plan for his life and God will not desert him.
If Christians confuse what is true of Jesus Christ as a human being with what is true of the Eternally Divine Son, they make very serious errors indeed. The most obvious is to conﬂate the exaltation of the Son of God from all eternity with the welcome given by the Father to the God-Man Christ Jesus, who redeemed God’s elect through a sacrificial death. So, in these great teachings, a course correction is long overdue, lest we run out of fuel over water. We must adore Jesus Christ our Lord, both fully Son of Man and fully Son of God.
