Your Arms Are Too Short To Box With God – JAM

In the late 70’s there was a religious musical that was a smashing success on Broadway entitled “Your Arms Are Too Short To Box With God” written by Vincent Carroll. Though I’ve never seen the play, its title caught my imagination. It’s a dangerous thing to fight against God. You may be a heavyweight; your name may be Joe Louis or Muhammed Ali; you may have a left jab and knock-out right; but your arms are too short to box with God. When the Jewish Sanhedrin forbade Peter and John to preach Christ, they replied “We must obey God rather than men.” Old Dr. Gamaliel got the point because he told the others, we’d better watch out what we do to these men “lest haply we be found even to fight against God.” This is Just-a-Minute with Ed Boggess
