<blockquote><p>The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.'</p>
<p>'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.' (Matthew 25:8-9)</p></blockquote>
You cannot distil reality from historical fact alone. Reality is to be lived in the present. No amount of fact, however irrefutable, can ever bridge the gap of having known and knowing, of having tasted and tasting.
Basing your entire faith because a man once crucified, died and rose again is to hang the very basis of your existence on a fine thread that upon close inspection isn't actually there. The resurrection has to be here and now, mostly because of how quickly we forget.
I need a new life bad.
