Pastor Rodney Hobbs from Stonegate Church in Midlothian says that in order for us to better understand the Bible, we should take some advice from Homer Simpson. Now if you’ve ever watched the Simpsons, you know that Homer is far from a theological person, much less an intellectual. However, during one episode where Ned Flanders gets Homer to read the Bible, Homer says something that is absolutely SPOT ON!
Here it is:
“Everyone in this book is a mess, except this one guy.”
That is great Biblical theology! That is EXACTLY what you should be thinking whenever you read the Bible! Everyone should realize that we all fall under the “Bad” category who are in need of salvation, but throughout the entire Bible, only one man is not a mess and that is Jesus Christ! So when you’re reading the text, don’t strive to imitate anyone but Jesus because everyone else is just as in need of salvation as we are!
