Quotable

Holden Caulfield on the Disciples:

I like Jesus and all, but I don't care too much for all the other stuff in the Bible. Take the Disciples, for instance. They were all right after Jesus was dead and all, but while He was alive, the were about as much use to Him as a hole in the head. All they did was keep letting Him down. I like almost anybody in the Bible better than the Disciples.
(Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, 99)

As much as we want to ignore it...many non-believers have less confusion than some Christians. Sin is the veil that makes the believer to soften in the faith and stumble again and again. The irony present in this excellent book: after having the chance to know Him,many doubt and forget that it is LOVE the prove of HIs touch in our lives. The conflict: many souls die waiting for Christians to transmite His love not just their simple words.
