This month let’s visit this quote by the unsung free thinker of his time, Thomas Paine.
“The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.”
As true then as it is today. But the lure of a wisp of justification to support ones belief in the non existant sells many books today. Fills many pews.
This one fact remains regardless. Only those who have bought the magic beans cannot see it.
