“The important thing is faith—the kind of faith that works through love.” Galatians 5:6
Symbols are important. Some of them, like communion and baptism, illustrate the cross of Christ. They symbolize salvation . . . but they do not impart salvation.
Putting your trust in a symbol is like claiming to be a sailor because you have a tattoo . . .
Our God . . . saves us, not because we trust in a symbol, but because we trust in a Savior.
