My path to atheism - Annie Besant - Bog

Bag om My path to atheism

" What hink ye of Christ, whose son is he?" Humane child of human parents, or divine Son of the Almighty God? When we consider his purity, his faith in the Father, his forgiving patience, his devoted work among the offscourings of society, his brotherly love to sinners and outcasts¿ when our minds dwell on these alone,¿we all feel the marvellous fascination which has drawn millions to the feet of this "son of man," and the needle of our faith begins to tremble towards the Christian pole. If we would keep unsullied the purity of our faith in God alone, we are obliged to turn our eyes some times¿however unwillingly¿towards the other side of the picture and to mark the human weaknesses which remind us that he is but one of our race. His harshness to his mother, his bitterness towards some of his opponents, the marked failure of one or two of his rare prophecies, the palpable limitation of his knowledge ¿ little enough, indeed, when all are told,¿are more than enough to show us that, however great as man, he is not the All-righteous, the All- seeing, the All-knowing, God."
