Einstein on the Christian Life

Albert Einstein defined insanity as, “doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.”
Not sure where he stood with Christ but Einstein had some things to tell us as believers.
He also had a few other zingers:
  • A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.
  • We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
  • It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.
Apply those to your Christian Life, your Bible study, or a situation in your community of faith.  There is one recurring situation that I encounter to which these speak.  I will expand tomorrow.  In the meantime how do you see these playing out in your experience?

  1. Einstein also said:
    “The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends”

    1. Right, If you read the last post in the series, the point is that truth can come from sources that are ungodly. There was never any claim that Einstein was a believer... But the things he said, were true and apply...

  2. The title, therefore, 'Einstein on the Christian Life' is misleading as it implies Einstein's positive comments relate to Christianity, when in fact, as posted above, the only things Einstein said about Christianity were negative.

    1. If so, not intentional. The point is that I am applying what he said to the Christian experience. Thus "on the Christian Life."

      Thank you though, for taking the time to express your thought. I appreciate the effort.
