There is one notable thing about our Christianity... it is still a hundred times better than the Christianity of the Bible. Measured by our Christianity of today, as bad and hypocritical as it is, neither the God nor His Son Jesus is a Christian, nor qualified for that moderately high place.
Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon, than the Word of God. It is a history of wickedness, that has served to corrupt and brutalise mankind; and, for my own part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.
Well said indeed.ReplyDelete
