The Eclectic

Time moves in one direction, memory in another. – William Gibson

Got this quote from one of my friends at work. I’ve always been interested in why Jesus only listed 6 of them in Mark 10. Quick, can you name the 4 left out with a bonus to name the one he added?

“For some reason, the most vocal Christians among us never mention the beatitudes. But, often with tears in their eyes, they demand that the Ten Commandments be posted in public buildings. And of course that’s Moses, not Jesus. I haven’t heard one of them demand that the Sermon on the Mount, the beatitudes, be posted anywhere.”
– Kurt Vonnegut
