There are catholics better than their religion

And evangelicals worse than theirs.

Of course, neither religion

Will get you up the golden stairs.

Heaven’s road is not multiple

Jesus has the only way – Love.

ON THIS DATE

Blaise Pascal was converted on 11/23/1654.  He was a French genius who invented the wristwatch, the bus route, first workable calculating machine and other devices.  Four things in the science/math world bear his name: Pascal’s Wager, Pascal’s Triangle, Pascal’s Law, and Pascal’s Theorem. 

He abandoned his life-long study of science, having realized “the Christian religion obliges us to live only for God and to have no other aim than him.” Best know work is his posthumous Pensées.

Pascal Quotes:
