>Some Thoughts on John 3:22-36…

>“While John the Baptizer affirms the superiority of Jesus over himself, I find it interesting what he then says about eternal life, belief, and obedience…

“Those who believe in the Son have eternal life, while those who neglect obedience neither have nor will have –so long as they disobey– eternal life. But, so long as they willfully remain in disobedience to the Son, they remain under the judgment of God.

“Interesting juxtaposition, to say the least. Theologically, this is a profound thought by John, and I’m reminded in it of Bonhoeffer’s call to quit giving lack of faith as an excuse to be negligent in regards to obeying Xp: Obey Him and you will trust Him.”
