BUY THE TRUTH, AND SELL IT NOT.
Proverbs 23:23 

 
The more noble the cause, the more devious the motive.

THE GRAND INQUISITOR
by Fyodor Dostoevsky...from the Book : The Brothers Karamasov
[Jesus on trial by the Inquisition]

The AUTHORITIES: "Oh never, never can they (the masses) feed themselves
without US (totalitarian State).
No Science will give them bread so long as they remain Free.
In the end they will lay their Freedom at our feet, and say to us,

'MAKE US YOUR SLAVES, BUT FEED US.'

They will understand themselves at last, that freedom and bread enough for all,
are inconceivable together;
for never, never will they be able to share between them!

Thou (speaking to Jesus Christ) didst promise them the Bread of Heaven,
but I repeat again, can it compare with earthly bread in the eyes of the weak,
ever sinful and ignoble race of man ?

And if for the sake of the Bread of Heaven, thousands and tens of thousands
shall follow Thee (Jesus),
What is to become of the millions and tens of millions of creatures who will not
have the strength to forego the earthly bread for the sake of the Heavenly ?

Choosing (earthly) bread, Thou (Jesus) wouldest have satisfied the universal
and eternal craving of humanity----Finding Someone to Worship."
(parenthesis this author)



Ride on, ride on! Rough-shod if need be;

Said the Robin to the Sparrow:' I should like to really know

You only have power over people as long as you don't take everything away

He who fears he shall suffer,

If the end brings me out all right,
what is said against me won't amount to anything.
If the end brings me out wrong,
10 angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Abraham Lincoln [1809-1865] 56 years

 
I am a creature of a day, passing through life as an arrow through the air.
A few moments hence, I am no more seen--I drop into eternity.
I want to know one thing... the way to Heaven.
God has given us a way, written in the Good Book, the Bible.
O give me that Book!
At any price, give me the Book of God !

John Wesley
 
The past is history.
The future, a mystery.
