The power of Paradox...

Richard Rohr points out "Simone Weil and others have said that the very nature of spiritual truth is that it is paradoxical. Christianity should have known this ... [however] ... The church has taught people doctrines, but has not always taught the proper mind with which to understand them."

 "...many people who formerly called themselves Christians have “thrown out the baby with the bathwater,” rejecting Christianity with the same dualistic, all-or-nothing thinking that immature religion taught them in the first place." Richard Rohr
