Excerpted from Is Christianity For You?
One of my seminary professors told the story about a man who went hiking on a cold winter day. He came to a river that appeared to be frozen over. But since he was unfamiliar with the area, he didn't know how thick the ice was. Naturally, he was afraid to walk out and fall through. So, he got down on his stomach and slowly began to inch out onto the ice.
When he had crawled near the middle of the river, the air began to tremble as he heard a rumbling sound draw closer and closer. Suddenly, a wagon with four horses at a full gallop shot over the crest of the riverbank, thundered across the river, then disappeared over the ridge on the other side. And there he was, lying on the ice, feeling foolish.
