Two Gnostics Walk into a Bar...
It's a post bonanza (again).
Michael and I are sitting in the office. He is reading the book "Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal" by Christopher Moore. (NB: I got him hooked on the book).
He looks at me suddenly and says, "If we were around back then, don't you think you would have followed Jesus?"
"Heck, yeah," I say.
See, Michael is an agnostic-someone who believes in God but just isn't sure what form God takes, and doesn't necessarily think God has his fingers in every aspect of life.
I'm a gnostic, in that I think God can be seen in everything, and that Jesus is really more of a historical figure with transcendant messages.
Needless to say, the Fundamentalists think we're going to Hell.
So, when Michael asked this, I was really impressed. I mean, how many people WOULDN'T follow this guy?
Why is it that we don't have a Jesus Figure walking around now? We're ready for some miracles, this society, but we haven't found our Savior.
What we need are some miracles. What we need is another Thomas More. What we need is a Reformation.
What we need to do is turn off the television and start back-talking the media. We need to start demanding some miracles. We need to start hoping that human life is better than this rigamarole we've created. I guess I'm sayin':
We Need Some Jesus Up in Here.

    What I Live By:
    We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. Through the unknown, unremembered gate When the last of earth left to discover Is that which was the beginning; At the source of the longest river The voice of the hidden waterfall And the children in the apple-tree Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillness Between two waves of the sea. Quick now, here, now, always— A condition of complete simplicity (Costing not less than everything) And all shall be well and All manner of thing shall be well When the tongues of flame are in-folded Into the crowned knot of fire And the fire and the rose are one. -T.S. Eliot "Little Gidding"
