Much Ado About Nothing
« on: May 28, 2015, 07:20:28 AM »
I think of this line from Shakespeare's comedy from time to time. If you're not familiar, an inept constable has just apprehended some men who had confessed the evil they had done. The constable misspeaks (however accurately):

Dogberry- O villain! Thou wilt be condemned into everlasting redemption for this...

Not quite perfect - should the Bard not have written "age-lasting" redemption? :2c:
Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.

"My idea of God is not a divine idea. It has to be
shattered time after time. He shatters it Himself. He is the great iconoclast. Could we not almost say that this shattering is one of the marks of His presence? The Incarnation is the supreme example; it leaves all previous ideas of the Messiah in ruins. And most are 'offended' by the iconoclasm; and blessed are those who are not."
-C.S. Lewis from his book  ---A Grief Observed---

..a slip of the tongue! ..freudian slip.. "much ado about nothing.." ..much ado about a supposed 'hell' or eternal damnation!

Jesus prayed "Sanctify them by thy truth, thy word is truth" John 17:17

.."in Christ all shall be made alive.. but each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those at His coming.. & then when He delivers the kingdom to the Father.." [Mt 13:33/1Cor 15:22-26]
