“In our world, we often hear people talk about being open-minded and about how religion can be stifling because of how closed-minded it can be.

Now it’s true that religion can lead people to be incredibly closed-minded, but the terms open-minded and closed-minded aren’t usually applied accurately. To believe that this is all there is and we are simply collections of neurons and atoms – that’s being closed to anything beyond that particular size and scope of reality.

But to believe that there’s more going on here, that there may be reality beyond what we can comprehend – that’s something else.

That’s being open.”
“We know that – all that. It’s not us, it’s the bank. A bank isn’t like a man. Or an owner with fifty thousand acres, he isn’t like a man either. That’s the monster.

Sure, cried the tenant men, “but it’s our land. We measured it and broke it up. We were born on it, and we got killed on it, died on it. Even if it’s no good, it’s still ours. That’s what makes it ours – being born on it, working it, dying on it. That makes ownership, not a paper with numbers on it.”
We’re sorry. It’s not us. It’s the monster. The bank isn’t like a man.

Yes, but the bank is only made of men.

No, you’re wrong there – quite wrong there. The bank is something else than men. It happens that every man in a bank hates what the bank does, and yet the bank does it. The bank is something more than men, I tell you. It’s the monster. Men made it, but they can’t control it.”

- John Steinbeck
Satan rages on earth, not because he is so powerful, but because he is so vulnerable. Satan desperately rages on earth because he knows he has already lost.
