Bible

by Norman P. Grubb

And in the final eternity, when even the Son becomes subject to the Father and hands over to the Father “that God may be all in all.” I Cor. 15:28. Pretty extreme, isn’t it? I like to emphasize this as an extreme Book—it entitles us to live an extreme life and preach an extreme message. Praise His Name!

It certainly is extreme. If we wrote that they’d say we were Pantheists or some queer name. But God said it. That doesn’t leave me with much bother with myself, does it? If a common little horrible little piece of a thing like this can say, “Christ is All,” it doesn’t leave me with much bother with myself. I just say, “all right, God, carry on then. If a disease happens to me, it happens to You as well as to me—fix it up then. If a sorrow happens to me, it happens to You as well as to me—carry it out then. It’s your business.”
