Directions that get you lost

Doug Lansky likes to collect photos of confusing road signs, like the one that says: Not a Through Street, but has below it a white arrow pointing straight ahead and the words: Evacuation Route; and another that says: Invisible Fence Now Open. No wonder drivers get confused.
But it’s not only government departments that attempt to give guidance but end up creating confusion. Over the past two thousand years the Christian church has grown from its humble beginnings to be a complex organism which attempts to express the good news of God’s love through accumulated layers of dogma, which often leave people more confused than ever. But, as the great theologian Karl Barth said on his deathbed, essentially, it all comes down to this: ‘Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.’
