There are only two "ways," two fundamental religions in the world. One of them feeds people, and the other one eats people. We see this contrast in vivid relief in the juxtaposition that Mark gives to the death of John the Baptist. That sad but typical episode is followed immediately by the feeding of the five thousand.
"And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother" (Mark 6:28).
"He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat." (Mark 6:37).
At the banquet of the first king, the head of a preeminent saint was brought to him on a platter, on a serving dish. "Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord" (Psalm 14:4). And in the next scene, at a banquet hosted by a completely different kind of king, all the people were invited to sit on the grass, and they were there fed by the prayer and power of that king, and the hands of his disciples.
