Do you imagine what would happen to the church if he didn´t?

The way I see it, when you talk about religion, everyone believes he has the truth, when in reality you are just basing your opinion on ONE point of view.
I remember a budist friend of mine changed the way I perceive a lot of things when after discussing some war issues, he just pulled out a piece of paper, scribbled in one side of it .. and then pulled it up as some sort of barrier between us, .. he asked me: "What do you see?"
.. "A scribbled paper"
was my response, .. to which he replied: "I see a blank one"
(Since he was watching the blank side of it.) ..
... was either of us wrong?
Nope. We just believed in our
own particular truths, since after all .. everything we took for granted pointed that way.
