“Rest or Rules” I really have come to the conclusion that the Church cannot truly heal people. It would lose its market. The trick in keeping an organization going is to keep people dependent upon it. And the easiest way to keep people dependent is by managing them with rules.

Because what is true must apply to all of life. It won’t cuddle up into a cozy corner of our lives called “spiritual”. All thoughts, when believed, eventually trickle down into policy. In other words, if you feel superior to other people, even though you don’t want to, you will inevitably treat other people as inferior. It’s like genocide. The end result is horrific.

It can also revolutionize our success in radically decreasing the spread of disease. So let's wash our damn hands!
