"its not the Christianity has being tried and failed. Its that it has never really being tried"

Been pondering on this quote for a few weeks but could not remeber who said it - apparently it was G.K. Chesterton.... Not the most handsome person to grace the planet but certainly one of the greatest minds, and someone whose thoughts seem to speak volumes in today's climate.
particuarly like this other quote from him too...
"Impartiality is a pompous name for indifference, which is an elegant name for ignorance." - The Speaker, 12/15/00
I think he might be a prize fighter when it comes to philosophy sucks you in and then deals a killer punch...

I've always love this quote from Chesterton, Michael. . . especially in working with "churched" kids. In the past 16 years I have so often found kids who (as one recent kid put it), is "rejecting the christian god" and wanted me to know of her struggle. My response was "good on ya because the god you are rejecting is not God at all but a pale Christendom imitation". My response caught her off guard I'm sure because most kids expect adults to try to talk them back into "believing in God". I've found it much better the opposite. . . to legitimize their rejection of what is, in fact, a false god then turn them loose after the real God before us. Chesterton's quote reminds me of that process completely. Thanks for blogging it.
