Sayings of a Gadfly
by Max Maxwell

<<    Prev     Home     Next    >>


 A preacher said, “All who do not accept Jesus as their savior are going to burn in hell.  There is only salvation in Jesus.  For Jesus is God.  And Jesus himself will send those who reject him into the flames of hell.” 

 The Gadfly said, “There is only salvation in love.  Jesus did not teach anyone to revere him as God. But he did teach us to love one another.  Loving your neighbor as yourself is the proclamation of divine truth and the redemption of humanity.  But the proclamation of Christ’s divinity is the humiliation of the church’s failure to embrace the teachings of Jesus.  Love will redeem humanity.  But what will save Jesus from your slander against his name?”
