About speculation

Jesus as the Good Shepherd, 3rd Century

Here's something to ponder:

Theologians have felt no hesitation in founding a system of speculative thought on the teachings of Jesus; and yet Jesus was never an inhabitant of the realm of speculative thought.

-- Walter Rauschenbusch

I don't mean to be anti-theology here. It just seems thought-provoking, that's all.

By the way, if you don't already know about Walter Rauschendbusch, I recommend that you click through and read up on him. Very interesting and compelling figure.
