AVOIDING THE POTHOLES
Potholes abound; ideas, concepts, doctrines
which cause us to swerve vary our course from that of love.
Some potholes maximise the individual
my standing in the community,
my wealth or eternal reward,
my eternal salvation.
Some potholes maximise the church
doctrine, liturgy, regulation;
separation from others.
Some potholes mask the way to God
introduce an intermediary
priest, or prophet,
Jesus or Mary.
introduce new Gods
wealth, power, or charismatic leader;
scripture, tribe, national identity.
traps for the unwary,
traps that hold us, stop us,
from following The Way.
