Hardly To Be Discerned

“Good and evil grow up together in the field of this world almost inseparably, and the knowledge of good is so involved and interwoven with the knowledge of evil, and in so many cunning resemblances hardly to be discerned, that those confused seeds which were imposed upon Psyche as an incessant labor to cull out and sort asunder were not more intermixed.” – John Milton, Areopagitica, 1644

  Today I gave Rick the Bible as well as a copy of the booklet “Ultimate Questions”. He actually seemed glad to receive them, and even came back later and said the he read some of the booklet on that way to put them in his car– and “it was pretty interesting.”  He even said he would certainly take time to at least read the verses and chapters I had marked in the Bible.  Pray that he does!
(During our conversation on Monday, Rick said he grew up with nothing but constant hellfire-and-brimstone teaching, which left a bad taste in his mouth for church.)
