Scottie, a blogging friend, recently posted the following graph. Although I know many of my readers/followers also read his blog and may have already seen it, I wanted to give it as much exposure as possible since the contents are so “right-on.”
Paraphrasing a comment by Scottie … it’s amazing how otherwise smart people will buy into some of the most ridiculous stories so long as they are couched in religion. Yet if they heard the same or a similar story outside of religion, they would never believe it!
And, I might add, as the chart shows, they are quite adept to “reinterpreting” scriptures in an effort to make them conform to contemporary thinking.
