The teachings of Jesus

Not all “flowers and socialism”

“When the apostles were first sent forth with their faces to the four corners of the earth, and turned again to acclaim their master, he did not say in that hour of triumph, ‘All are aspects of one harmonious whole’ or ‘The universe evolves through progress to perfection’ or ‘All things find their end in Nirvana’ or ‘The dewdrop slips into the shining sea.’ He looked up and said, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.'” — G.K. Chesterton, The New Jerusalem, 1920
