John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

Monotheism begins with a god who hates trees. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

Christianity is a creed embraced by billions, but rarely chosen by anyone. The same is true of Islam, whose followers now make up about one-fifth of the world's population of sex billion people. Jews are racially born into their religion. Today we have utterly forgotten that heresy derives from the Greek heraisthai, "to choose." To be heretical means to have choices and not be forced or obligated to believe what one is told to believe. A heretic is free to choose what to believe, or not to believe. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

Empathy for the plight of the Goddess may be essential in seeing how to face our own plight on Earth. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

The God who hates trees is the founding father of patriarchy. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

We inhabit a three-body cosmos. Sophia is essentially the matriarch of a single-parent family - a single-planet goddess, if you will. But she relies on the support of the surrogate parents, sun and moon, to manage her terrestrial brood. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

The evangelical assertion of the new Word was not intended to make man fit into the world, but to verify his isolation — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

Who really needs to be commanded to love? Anyone who has loved anything in life, be it another person, an animal, a place in nature, a work of art - whatever - knows that love comes by its own power. It cannot and need not be commanded. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

The most effective way to defeat patriarchy is to defy and disown its self-legitimating narrative. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

Christian religion defines morality by a belief system based on a master-slave relationship, and rooted in resentment of the raw beauty and power of the life force. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

What kind of world results if the power to dominate and control others, inflicting enormous suffering in the process, is sanctioned by a divine being who can at the same time redeem that suffering and release the perpetrators and their victims from that world's evils? — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

The suppression of ecstasy and condemnation of pleasure by patriarchal religion have left us in a deep, festering morass. The pleasures people seek in modern times are superficial, venal, and corrupt. This is deeply unfortunate, for it justifies the patriarchal condemnation of pleasure that rotted out our hedonistic capacities in the first place! Narcissism is rampant, having reached a truly global scale. It now appears to have entered the terminal phase known as "cocooning," the ultimate state of isolation. Dissociation from the natural world verges on complete disembodiment, represented in Archontic ploys such as "transhumanism," cloning, virtual reality, and the uploading of human consciousness into cyberspace. The computer looks due to replace the cross as the primary image of salvation. It is already the altar where millions worship daily. If the technocrats prevail, artificial intelligence and artificial life will soon overrule the natural order of the planet. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Lamb Lash

Because patriarchy uses redemptive theology to legitimate itself, all believers who embrace the redeemer complex are accessory to the master scheme of domination. — John Lamb Lash

John Lash Quotes By John Fante

So it happened at last: I was about to become a thief, a cheap milk-stealer. Here was your lash-in-the-pen genius, your one story-writer: a thief. — John Fante

John Lash Quotes By John Robbins

Your life does matter. It always matters whether you reach out in friendship or lash out in anger. It always matters whether you live with compassion and awareness or whether you succumb to distractions and trivia. It always matters how you treat other people, how you treat animals, and how you treat yourself. It always matters what you do. It always matters what you say. And it always matters what you eat. — John Robbins

John Lash Quotes By John Dryden

Roused by the lash of his own stubborn tail, Our lion now will foreign foes assail. — John Dryden

John Lash Quotes By John Piper

And now let us listen to the groans of Frederick Douglass, feel the lash with Amy, endure the satire of Du Bois, and measure the wrath of Malcolm X; let us contemplate the pathos of black childhood and the tragedy of black womanhood. And let us not forget that [as Martin Luther King Jr. said] "he who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it." And let us also remember that if God has given us a revelation of the true nature of man, surely we will render account if we do not live in the light of that revelation, and especially so if we are called to the holy office of the Christian ministry. — John Piper
