A while back I stumbled across The Devil’s Dictionary, a collection of a newspaper column written by Ambrose Bierce in the late 1800s and early 1900s.  It speaks to both the timelessness and the insight that can be provided by dry-witted sarcasm.

“Christian, n.  One who believes that the New Testament is a divinely inspired book admirably suited to the spiritual needs of his neighbor.  One who follows the teachings of Christ in so far as they are not inconsistent with a life of sin.”

Guilty on both counts!
