Albert Einstein on evaluating churches.

"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."

More Albert Einstein on evaluating churches: "The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this."

It is fortunate God is not represented by the written word of humans in the bible. For it is these humans that made the Christian God in their image.

Jonathan: I quote Einstein as selectively as you quote Jesus.

Argent: The "Wholly Other" God I find in the Bible isn't all that much like you or I; though I'm seeking to become more like him.

JLundell said...

Ah. but neither of them is one of my gods. That makes selectivity a little easier. And I do think both of them said some fairly sensible things.
