The Pure Word

The reddish dye of the "anotta tree" (South America) is largely used in colouring butter and cheese. Some like them all the better because of the colouring. In any case, the pure Word of God needs no colouring. Man has nothing to add to it to make it any better. But the colouring process does go on. The Word is mixed with human wisdom to make it more palatable to the unregenerate mind. So much do men love the colouring that they will not have the pure milk and butter without it. Some even seem to swallow the colouring, and nothing else.
