The following is an explanation of the symbols in the “parable” posted on Saturday, March 25th—“There was an Island”.

The island is the earth.

The 1000 people are the inhabitants of the earth.

The owner of the island is GOD, the CREATOR of the universe.

The instruction book is the Bible.

The mainland is Heaven.

The bridge is the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

The sharks are the devil and sin.

The engineer is false prophets and teachers.

The ship is humanism and other man created “methods” to reach salvation and enter into heaven.

The conclusion of the parable:  the only way to get to Heaven is by obedience to GOD (following the Bible which includes faith, repentance, confession, baptism, love, and obedience) and through HIS SON—JESUS.  (To be continued.)
