Sayings of a Gadfly
by Max Maxwell

 A preacher said, “All we need is the Bible.  The inspired word of God will sustain us in all things.” 

 The Gadfly responded, “No one has ever filled their hungry stomach with the word ‘food’.  And where is the person who has warmed the depths of their heart with the word ‘love’?  The Bible may inspire us. But just as the smell of food gives us only the anticipation of actually eating, so inspiration by itself is empty.”
