  • A Christian koan

    A few years ago, I read something on this site that's stuck with me: http://jonathanscorner.com/koans/ (the personal website of an Orthodox Christian who has some great stuff):



    A novice said to a master, "I am humble."

    The master said, "No, you are not humble."

    Another novice said, "I am not humble."

    The master said, "That's right; you are not humble."
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

    Wanna buy my book "Humility, and How I Mastered It"?
    "Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?”

      I like this one:

      A Catholic and a Protestant were having a debate about faith and works, versus faith which works. Someone looked on, and said, "Everything is subject to debate. There is no core of universal Christian faith."

      A believer punched him between the eyes.

      "What did you do that for?", he asked.

      "My fist looked different to your two eyes. Therefore, I did not hit you."
      βλέπομεν γὰρ ἄρτι δι᾿ ἐσόπτρου ἐν αἰνίγματι, τότε δὲ πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον·
      ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

      אָכֵ֕ן אַתָּ֖ה אֵ֣ל מִסְתַּתֵּ֑ר אֱלֹהֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מוֹשִֽׁיעַ׃
