Ponderings

The matter is quite simple. The Bible is easy to understand.
But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers.
We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very
well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act
accordingly. Take any words in the New Testament and forget
everything except pledging yourself to act accordingly.
My God, you will say, if I do that my whole life will be ruined.
How would I ever get on in the world?

Dreadful it is to fall into the hands of the living God.
Yes, it is a dreadful thing to be alone with the New Testament.

~Søren Kierkegaard
