“Properly understood, Christianity is by no means the opiate of the people.

It’s more like the smelling salts.”

~~Pastor Tim Keller

  1. Cynthia says:

    Amen! Wake up and smell the wild, savage beauty of the Cross.

  2. Just Julie says:

    I love the way you put that, Cynthia. xoxo

  3. Ganeida says:

    lol Properly understood [& used] opiates target the damaged pain area only which begs the question… 😀

  4. Just Julie says:

    Oh yes, I see where you’re going with that… 🙂 xoxo

  5. Valerie says:

    I had to read that 4 times before it made sense to me. Yes! Yes! Smelling Salts! What a perfect metaphor. Your eyes pop open, you come to your senses, your head now feels clear…and there stands Jesus with His hand out stretched.

  6. Just Julie says:

    Wow — so true Valerie! I love the picture this paints for me… xoxo
