Religious Sanity

“Half the people in the world think that the metaphors of their religious traditions, for example, are facts. And the other half contends that they are not facts at all. As a result we have people who consider themselves believers because they accept metaphors as facts, and we have others who classify themselves as atheists because they think religious metaphors are lies”

—–Joseph Campbell

Radical humorThough Campbell wrote these words many years ago, they are ever so true today. America’s increasing number of agnostics and “spiritual but not religious” all think that much of religion is a bold faced lie. This knowledge, coupled with the rise of fanatical fundamentalism, leaves little room for spiritual balance in our day. Perhaps we could all use a good dose of simple religion.

A Few One Liners

This post is different than my usual stuff, but I thought even monastic types need a brake now and then. 

  • Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.
  • Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisers.
  • It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.
  • The good Lord didn’t create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.
  • When you get to your wit’s end, you’ll find God lives there.
  • People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church.
  • Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever.
  • Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn’t belong..
  • If the church wants a better preacher, it only needs to pray for the one it has.
  • God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should you?
  • Some minds are like concrete thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
  • Peace starts with a smile.
  • I don’t know why some people change churches; what difference does it make which one you stay home from?
  • A lot of church members who are singing ‘Standing on the Promises’ are just sitting on the premises.
  • We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.
  • Be ye fishers of men.. You catch them – He’ll clean them.
