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,
even 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.
Some potholes introduce new Gods
wealth, power, or charismatic leader; scripture, tribe, national identity.
Potholes abound
traps for the unwary, traps that hold us, stop us,
from following The Way that Jesus showed us.
