It is easier to become a christian when I am not one than to become a christian when I am one.

Kierkegaard

Christianity is an absolute paradox; an absurd religion because no man, trusting reason alone, could understand that God became man and was executed as one of the poorest men; but exactly because it is absurd it is the best religion, for we must exercise all our powers of conviction to be able to embrace this faith.

Kierkegaard
