"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

All the pretty shiny things

Once again distracted me, and I neglected my duties as host.

The answer to the question raised by this post: "Which disciples are you talking about?" is found in Luke 9:57-62. I wasn't thinking about Judas, or any of the other 12, but about the young man who wanted to bury his father, and the young man who wanted to say goodbye to his family. Matthew has something similar in 8:19-22, but he doesn't include the young man and his family.
