Sacred Texts

We are living through an age when insistence on the literal truth of sacred texts (which zealots assume to be self-evident, and exclusive of all other truths) ranks high among the causes of conflict in the world. St Paul's adage that the “letter kills, but the spirit gives life” has never been more true. But when it is understood properly, the letter can also give life.

Wow ! that was amazing ! but the sad part is religion is manipulated by zealots and fanatics for thier benifit. Every religion is beautiful in it's own context , If only we 'live and let others live ' world is a beautiful place ...
