Faith Beyond Money

Just as China was braced for the leather dollar and the often delirious and deleterious effects that money can have on people by the introduction of Buddhism, an argument might be made that Christ’s monumental appearance, and it’s subsequent splitting of what we know as time, may have been some sort of cosmic answer to the ramifications of the Roman Empire’s new economic innovations.

Is There Faith Beyond Religion?

“We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming ‘sub-creator’ and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbor, while materialistic ‘progress’ leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.”

– J.R.R. Tolkien
