Here’s one you’re sure to encounter:
Religion is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant. They each only felt a part of the elephant, so they all had different views of what the elephant was like. In the end, as a passing man revealed to them, “Each in his own way was partly right, but none was entirely right. What they were all wrong about was the thought that they were each entirely right and the others entirely wrong.” If people could just get this, we’d have a lot fewer people arguing about religion!
Here’s a video of the parable. How would you respond to this? Let us know, and then we’ll hear from Alan on Thursday.
