8.4.02

There's a point in my thesis where I make a reference to something Jesus said. And while the reference fits the argument I'm making, it feels really strange to be saying it. I have this impulse to rewrite the sentence in non-Biblical form, as if that will make it more legitimate. But I wouldn't be doing this if it were a reference to Max Weber, or John Stuart Mill, or Wolfgang Sachs. And it isn't like I'm using the fact that Jesus said it to prove anything -- I'm just referring to an idea he had.
