Slowly Learning The Bible

I am picking up a family bible on my upcoming Circle Trip. And last night watching Pulp Fiction a passage from the bible really struck me. From Ezekiel 25:17

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you!

One of my greatest illuminations in what has turned out to be my development of a philosophy of recovery is that all these age old sayings are true. Trouble is nobody believes in anything. As I was told 20 years ago in Thailand:

It doesn’t matter what you believe – as long as you believe.

And believe me the Chief Outhouse Correspondent will get to the bottom of why nobody believes.
