True and False Religion – a Philosophical Answer

“The maxim of illusory religion runs: “Fear not; trsut in God and He will see that none of the things you fear will happen to you”; that of real religion, on the contrary is: “Fear not; the things that you are afraid of are quite likely to happen to you, but they are nothing to be afraid of””

John Macmurray, Gifford Lectures of 1953-54 IN William Barry’s Paying Attention to God, p. 29
