Sermon 132: The Formula For Peace
Author: Mark Spencer
A drop of paint on a canvas cannot know the measure of the canvas. In the same way man cannot know the measure of creation. The drop of paint that claims to know the canvas is too blinded by vanity and pride to even know itself. This truth applies to every drop that lays claim to knowledge of anything more than self. You do not have the answers. The pursuit of such vanities is a wide and dangerous road. Neither the theist nor the atheist knows the answers. This is also true of the democrat and republican, the scientist and the layman, the aristocrat and the pauper. All of man's efforts to separate himself from the throng, to create distinctions in class, party, beauty, and belief, are simply exercises in vanity.
