Richard Holloway Quotes: The Best Approach To Religious Codes

The Best Approach To Religious Codes That Have Become Rigid And Absolute Is To Acknowledge Their Arbitrariness And Use Them, If We Use Them At All, As A Private Discipline For Ordering Our Own Chaos. When They Are Proclaimed As The Bearer Of Absolute And Unchanging Truth, Defended In The Traditional Way, They Enslave The Human Spirit Rather Than Protect It From Its Own Excesses. Jesus' Vision Burned Through The External Systems To The Anxious Human Heart That Lay Beneath Them And Called For Its Transformation Into A Perfection Of Love.
