Rohr and the Teachings of Jesus

“It might be a little cynical, but you could almost figure out what Jesus said by looking at our history and naming the opposite of what we did! We keep worshipping the messenger, keeping Jesus up on statues and images, so we can avoid what Jesus said. Its the best smokescreen in the world! We keep saying, ‘We love Jesus.’ The more we talk about Jesus, the less we’ll do what he said. That’s the way the ego fools itself. And in this case, it’s the way culture, nations and even the churches have fooled themselves.”

– Richard Rohr & John Feister, Jesus’ Plan for a New World, 31.
