Intercession

“The idea that each of us can be directly spiritual is radical. Most religions are based not on teaching adherents to be directly spiritual, but in persuading them to trust in the intercession of ministers or priests. The problem with this approach is that we cannot gain access to spirituality except through the medium of a fallible human being. If we want to see Tao, we need only open our eyes and trust what we see.”  ~Deng Ming-Dao

“You don’t need to believe in hereafter–just believe in me.”  ~from Jesus He Knows Me by Genesis (YouTube)
