A pastor and a soap maker went for a walk together. The soap maker said, "what good is religion? Look at all the trouble and misery of the world! Still there, even after years--thousands of years--of teaching about goodness and truth and peace. Still there, after all the prayers and sermons and teachings. If religion is good and true, why should
this be?" The pastor said nothing. They continued walking until he noticed a child playing in the gutter.
Then the pastor said, "Look at that child. You say that soap makes people clean, but see the dirt on that youngster. Of what good is soap? With all the soap in the world, over all these years, the child is

We can get very intelectual (secular humanism) with the beliefs of Christianity, but I want to stress what Jesus stood for when he died on the cross; it was symbolizing God's love for YOU and us! Its more than all this apologetics, philosophical, or intelectual "stuff". It's about loving God and loving our neighbor (God's greatest commandment that beat all that legalism and law-Matthew 22:37-40; Romans 13:8&10.
