Understanding the Bible has Everything to do with Holiness

“The startling truth is that, if you stumble over Melchizedek, it may be because you watch questionable TV programs. If you stumble over the doctrine of election, it may be because you still use some shady business practices. If you stumble over the God-centered word of Christ in the cross, it may be because you love money and spend too much and give too little. The pathway to spiritual maturity and solid biblical food is not first becoming an intelligent person, but becoming an obedient person. What you do with alcohol and sex and money and leisure and food and computer have more to do with you capacity for solid food than where you got to school and what books you read.” – John Piper
