How many people today are in prison? How many whose lives are lived in a grim, dank dungeon? How many desperately yearn to escape?And all the assembled said "AMEN."
We are imprisoned just as the soul of Jacob Marley was, doomed to drag the chains of our assumptions, belief systems, and world views to our graves.
Contrary to the opinion of many people, we are not best served by striving to create coherent "belief systems", for any coherence we achieve is on the surface; we do not go deeply into the realms of the soul.
Faith is better.
Faith is tougher.(Source)
