If one purges the Judaism of the Prophets and Christianity as Jesus Christ taught it of all subsequent additions, especially those of the priests, one is left with a teaching which is capable of curing all the social ills of humanity.

Humanity has every reason to place the proclaimers of high moral standards and values above the discoverers of objective truth.
When the expected course of everyday life is interrupted, we are like shipwrecked people on a miserable plank in the open sea, having forgotten where they came from and not knowing whither they are drifting...
One doesn't need to be a prophet to say, 'The Catholic Church will pay for this silence.' Dr.

Consider the hate the Church manifested against the Jews and then against the Muslims, the Crusades with their crimes, the burning stakes of the Inquisition, the tacit consent of Hitler's actions while the Jews and the Poles dug their own graves and were slaughtered. The truly religious man has no fear of life and no fear of death—and certainly no blind faith; his faith must be in his conscience.
