Words of Wisdom

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

— Buckminister Fueller

Good words for Christians to reflect on… and then, act on.

Or are we just going to sit on our hands, cry out “Woe, Woe!”, and then blame someone else – anyone else – for our collective and individual failures, cowardice, and dependency on authorities that despise us?

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

— Jesus Christ

If you are looking for a model of someone who decided to ‘change something’ and ‘built a new model, that made the existing models obsolete’, then I know just the Man you’re looking for.

Go then, and do as He did.
