Daily Dose of Ingersoll


Everybody knows that Christianity does not tend to
generosity.Christianity says: “Save your own soul, whether anybody
else saves his or not.” Christianity says: “Let the great ship go
down. You get into the little life-boat of the gospel and paddle
ashore, no matter what becomes of the rest.” Christianity says you
must love God, or something in the sky, better than you love your
wife and children. And the Christian, even when giving, expects to
get a very large compound interest in another world. The Infidel
who gives, asks no return except the joy that comes from relieving
the wants of another.
