On Monday I asked the question:
Is it Biblical to ever say something like: “If anyone does not love the Lord–a curse be on him.” ?
Well, those are Paul’s words in 1Cor.16:22! “If anyone does not love the Lord–a curse be on him.” (NIV) So yes, it is Biblical to say that. That is, it is said in the Bible.
Why does he say that? Beats me. Should we say that? Probably not.
But that is certainly a far cry from the casual “God bless you!” that we say so thoughtlessly to all those pagans…
