The End of Religion

19 Jun

Christianity is the proclamation of the end of religion, not of a new religion, or even the best of all possible religions. And therefore if the cross is the sign of anything, it’s the sign that God has gone out of the religion business and solved all the world’s problems without requiring a single human being to do a single religious thing.

Robert Farrar Capon

The Mystery of Christ, Eerdmans, 1993, 62.
