The Blind cannot lead the Blind

Here is a very short parable.

“Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?” Luke 6:39 (NIV)

That is all there is to the parable, two short rhetorical questions. The answers are in the questions. Jesus was not talking about physical blind men. The parable referred to spiritual blind guides teaching spiritually blind followers. The pit is not a hole in the ground. It is the lake of fire.

The blind guides are the Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens of this world!
