According to a collection of Bronze Age myths penned by a tribe of goatherders, during his Sermon on the Mount Jesus tells his followers: “do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.” (Matthew 7:6)
A common interpretation of this statement is that the “wisdom of religion” cannot be appreciated by non-believers. Modern Christians seem to have no qualms about spreading their “pearls” as far and wide as possible, so they don’t seem to take this warning seriously.
Perhaps Jesus was more prophetic than nonbelievers credit him. It does seem that when Christians try to peddle their faith as wisdom, the result is that their arguments are trampled and torn to pieces.
The purpose of this blog is to separate the pearls from the nonsense. If Christians have true beliefs, they should withstand the light of criticism and logic. If faith is false and empty, it will crumble like so many pearls before swine.
