Stretching till you snap

The truth is each of the world’s religions constitute different paths, but they all lead to the same place. Both parts of that equation are important. There are similarities, and there are differences – just as people have similarities and differences. It is a mistake, and not at all helpful, to try to make them all the same. Each founder of a great religion spoke onto a particular group of people at a particular time and place. From that came some eternal truths – and a lot of truths for that moment. Trying to make the truths for the moment into eternal truth is like trying to stretch a rubber band too far. It will snap back and sting you.
