Sayings of a Gadfly

 A Christian said, “The Bible contains the word of God.  The words in the Bible are the revelation of truth.  And there is no revelation of God’s truth outside of the Bible.  So give me your wisdom Mr. Gadfly, what is the truth?”

 At that moment a bird started to sing in the trees.  The Gadfly looked up and listened. 

 The Christian said, “Reveal to me the meaning of life.” 

 The Gadfly looked at the ground and saw some ants carrying food to their home. 

 “Give me Divine insight,” the Christian chided.  

 The Gadfly saw a baby in its mother’s arms.  The baby was laughing until little tears came out of its little eyes.  The Gadfly began to laugh. 

 The Christian demanded, “I asked you to speak to me about truth?  So speak up. Why do you ignore me?” 

 The Gadfly asked, “Why do you ignore the truth?”
