Voice of the Day

It is not scientific doubt, not atheism, not pantheism, not agnosticism, that in our day and in this land is likely to quench the light of the gospel. It is a proud, sensuous, selfish, luxurious, church-going, hollow-hearted prosperity.

  1. Hello Mystery,
    I will actually be going with my wife to church this Sunday. Probably the Methodist. As you know I am agnostic, now. I was a Christian for 39 years until last year. My wife has just about threatened to leave me however unless I go back to church with her. She simply is NOT going where I have gone, no matter what, no way, no how. Funny thing is that she has begun to see a lot of the same Biblical problems that I see, but we are surrounded, even engulfed with family, friends, and a community of fundamentalist, so no way she is going on this trip with me. It would be like a person leaving the Amish community and being shunned.
    I will survive, if I can just keep my mouth shut. This will not be easy.

    Praise Jesus and pass the Merlot!

  2. Hello Noogatiger!
    I sympathize and I understand completely! I too go occasionally because the people are so loving, yet so clueless. It sounds arrogant I know, but I love them like family, but sometimes can’t stand to be around them. It’s so hard to break away and there is always that pull! It’s hard to recognize that others are on different journeys than we are. For years I insisted that my husband be a certain Christian way and act the part of the perfect Christian husband. Bless his “pagan” heart, he resisted and now I’m thankful for it. He’s my solid rock when I get religiously manic. I wish you temperance for your mouth and good thoughts for your ordeal! Your wife is very lucky to have your support. 🙂
