'The truth shall make you free'

is a Christian* idea
inextricably enmeshed
in the belief in progress.

But how can one indefinable,
unmeasurable abstraction
produce a measurable increase in,
or a transformation of, another ?

Free from what ?
Free to what ?

Our criterion for judging religions, however,
should not be the narrow and splenetic
matter of truth and falsehood
- it should be æsthetic.

(*John VIII, 32)
