Every LC'er should go back to the story of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10 and read the punchline: "You go and do likewise."

LC teachers loved to expound this story condemning religious people, (Remember their favorite book, Christ vs. Religion?) but they always skipped the punchline. They loved to allegorize the robbers, the oil, and the wine, but left out the actual instructions from the Lord concerning the original question, "what must we do to inherit eternal life?"

Thus LC teachers would endlessly strain allegorical gnats, but pass the plain teachings of the camel.
