A kick in the face from a dead guy

February 25, 2009

“The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly.”

– Soren Kierkegaard

    Lex, Soren right now is my favorite author. His work provocations is one of the most challenging books outside of the Bible that I have ever read.

      I’ll have to check that out. I’ve heard a lot about him (mostly from listening to Brian Zahnd), but have never really read any of his work. Thanks for the recommendation!

    great quote.

    crazy how the simplest parts of the bible are those we “struggle” with.

    “love my neighbor, what? how? i don’t understand. why me, god?”

    yep… we’re pretty ridiculous people. :)
