When direct and definite evidence for any desired doctrine is not to be found, then recourse is had to symbolism. There are many delightful types in the Word of God. I would not have them ignored. Where God has pointed them out they must be interpreted strictly in accord with His literal statements. They should never be made the basis of any doctrine. If they are, the presumption is that the teaching is false, for God has not left it to the human imagination to complete His revelation. Beware of symbols! Almost everyone can look back and see where he has held error based on symbolism.
