Famous quotes with Profiting

  • Nowadays, of course, progressive theologians are all sex; they say it's a good thing, the biblical position was not that sex was evil, but that it was good, and that it's alright.    But now, look here, what is the real point here? The proof of the pudding is in the eating. What can you get kicked out of the church for? Any church — Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, Episcopalian, Baptist, and the synagogue I think too. What's the real thing for which people get kicked out, excommunicated?    For "envy, hatred, malice, and all uncharitableness"? "Pride, vainglory, and hardness of heart"? Owning shares in munitions factories? Profiting off slums? No You can be a bishop and live in all those sins openly. But if you go to bed with the wrong person, you're out.    So one has to conclude that, for all practical purposes, the church is a sexual regulation society; and it really isn't interested in anything else. Christianity is more preoccupied with sex than even Priapism or Tantric Yoga [are]. Because that's the that counts, that's the sin, the really important sin.
    Alan Watts
