if it were only this simple.

I used to smart, to rage, at the worldliness of so-called Christianity, and to come close on despair. Now I see that certainly such so-called Christianity existed and does even now, but it isn't the real thing; the real thing, however, exists -- it is in the hearts of simple people, and it depends not upon what the school of thought one grew up in, or what creed one believes in, but on one's capacity for love and for humility.
