“If you really want to overcome this sense of inferiority, develop an abiding religious faith.”

I’m sure Jesus said to Zacchaeus, “If you really want to overcome this sense of inferiority, develop an abiding religious faith.” Because there is something about religion that gives you a sense of belonging…Irreligion somehow leaves us standing in a blind universe. It says to us somehow that human life is nothing but a cosmic accident on a minor planet, a sort of haphazard by-product of blind forces. Says to us somehow that man is nothing but a tiny vagary of whirling electrons, a
wisp of smoke from a limitless smoldering. But then religion comes over and says, “Oh no,” that this universe has meaning and that every individual in this universe counts and every individual in this universe has significance because there is a God
who guides the destiny of life. There is a God who stands at the center of the universe, and he who discovers this principle begins to live. –Overcoming an Inferiority Complex, MLK
