    Hello everyone,

    I had mentioned in a previous post that I thought many people confused their religion as the end rather than the means and therefore fell into the danger of loving their religion more than God. I found this poem by Rumi that I think says it well.


    "Many have been led astray by the Qur'an:
    by clinging to that rope many have fallen into the well.
    There is no fault in the rope, O perverse man,
    for it was you who had no desire to reach the top."

    So also with the Bible

    Substitute Bible for Qur'an, and it works as well.

    Good contribution, Veritas.
