The Wisdom of Harrell Beck

Nicest Wedding Present


Is it possible that some people mess around so much in trying to interpret the religion of the first century that they don’t have to practice it in the twenty-first century? Was Jerry Lewis right when he said the nicest wedding present given to him was a motion picture film of the ceremony? When things would get bleak in their marriage, he retires to his study, locks the door from the inside, puts the film in the projector, runs it through backward, and walks away a free man!  That’s what biblical study means to a lot of people -- but that’s not what Biblical study means to a Church that regards itself as the Body of Christ! -- Harrell Beck in “The Heart of Biblical Faith”
