Explanation of Scriptures

[3.11] I can tell you, my dear friend and brother, as I read this book for the first time, it seriously seemed to me as if it had some hidden wise sense; but the more often and the more critically attentive I read it through, the more I became convinced that this whole book is nothing but the richest treasure trove of the most gross nonsense! For apart from some old practical sayings of wisdom, it is just one insensibility following another, and apart from the only few sayings, which are also not the purest gold, is this whole book quite suitable to keep up the mystical stupidity of man for another few centuries!

[3.12] From this reasoning and consideration, you can sufficiently deduce what effect the winds and the torrents from the Bible had on our earthly building. Once such a sand-based person has been destroyed, may those who want, again collect him; for I and all My angels find such work one of the most difficult of all, and it is easier to get ten thousand people from all the streets and alleys into the great feast of life, than one such a man who departed from reading the Bible, to buy oxen.
