Quiet reading this morning

- "...the basic premise of religion - that if you live a good life, things will go well for you - is wrong. Jesus was the most morally upright person who ever lived, yet he had a life filled with the experience of poverty, rejection, injustice, and even torture."
- "The Christian gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for me, yet I am so loved and valued and that Jesus was glad to die for me."
- "All other major faiths have founders who are teachers that show the way to salvation. Only Jesus claimed to actually be the way of salvation himself."
Various quotes from The Reason for God, Timothy Keller.
