Great Quote: Sam Jones

If I seek religion I can't find it, and if I've found it I haven't got it, and if I've got it I can't lose it, and if I lose it I haven't had it. -Sam Jones

A pithy summary of Calvinism, is it not?

(quoted in the book: A Right Conception of Sin, by Richard S. Taylor)

Pithy, indeed, or something like that.

Yes, pithy, and the circular nature of the quote shows how very little comfort there is for the believer in the Calvinist theology.
