Subject: Burbank's Views

Luther's view on Religion. he Attacks Churnianity versus True religion see below:

"It was Just the same outspoken denunciation of theology. "No avenging Jewish God, no Satanic devil, no fiery hell, is of
any interest to me," he said. Jesus? He liked the literary figure, but "the clear light of science teaches us that we must be
our own saviors." God? "The God within us is the only available God we know." We must come out from "behind
theological barbed-wire fences," into "the great ocean of scientific truth." "Science, unlike theology, never leads to
insanity." The word "ceremony," he pungently said, "is derived from cerements" or "grave clothes." Very topical, in a
chapel. Religion is a matter of feeling, and "feelings are all right if one does not get drunk on them." "Obsolete misleading
theologies," he said, "bear the same relation to the essence of true religion that scarlet fever, mumps, and measles do to
education." But what will become of the children? If there was one thing Burbank was zealous about it was the training of
children, and children are, he said, "the greatest sufferers from outgrown theologies."
