    “It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor, blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice. Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all. It merely required no character.” Joseph Heller, Catch 22

    I'm begging the American people to pay attention to what is going on. Because if you want to have a democracy intact for your children, and your children's children, and generations yet unborn we've got to guard this moment… this is our watch.

    In that you have just proven what I have often asserted to many a deaf ear on TOL - that the following does not refer to the lost being unable to understand the Scripture.

    1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

    Acts 17:11,12
    Thanks.

    "The oracles of God foretold the rising of an Antichrist in the Christian Church; and in the Pope of Rome, all the characteristics of that Antichrist are so marvelously answered that if any who read the Scriptures do not see it, there is a marvelous blindness upon them."

    ~Cotton Mather

    As a whole part of 'psychological education' it needs to be remembered that a neurosis can be valuable; also that 'adjustment' to a sick and insane environment is of itself not 'health' but sickness and insanity.

    That's why I quoted him, and that's why I requoted him, because if an atheist understands the Gospel, then shouldn't Christians?

    Agreed, understanding isn't too hard.... it's the believing part that most have a problem with.

    This quote is from a game called Civilization 6. It is a summary of Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics:

    "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
