! A Thought From Isaac Of Nineveh

Isn’t it extraordinary – when
you come to think of it – that
the One whom atheists deny
(for then they would have to acknowledge
One greater than themselves…)
knew, knows, about humility…?

I mean, how could He?

Suppose, He hadn’t sent
such men as Jesus Christ
to show us that humility
was, is, godly, and indeed,
a path to know that One?

Would we then be treating
the humble as the self-victimising
scum of the earth? And we, assured in being
proud and arrogant?

What else could that One
know of contraries and opposites,
paradox and contradiction,
unless He (or She, or It)
knows all; knows us
better than we know ourselves?

I like the way you have inserted a few nicely aimed barbs into your well argued case. Ah, the arrogance of those who know the answers. Personally, I prefer the not knowing. Great poem. love, Allie xxxx
I'm an atheist. But I'm also open minded and considerate of others views. Good Poem.
