Tao Bible - Exodus 3:5

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
~ King James version ~

Tao makes no distinctions.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
As we move throughout the Bible, we find a deity who constantly distinguishes between places, beings, actions and thoughts. In this instance, God deems a particular piece of real estate as "holy".

Tao makes no distinctions. Perceived differences are an invention of the human mind. From this perspective, if all things are of Tao, then all things are divine. If one patch of ground is holy, then all patches are holy.

  1. there are countless distinctions between holy/not holy and clean/unclean in the old testament. there are also distinctions between races that are "holy" as opposed to enemies that must be destroyed...
