Quote of the Day

“Religion is . . . a shame-management system, often with the best of intentions and always with the worst of results. In the end people are still addicted to shame and bounce between self-pity and self-glory, never finding freedom to simply live in Him. It makes people think God wants a cause and effect relationship with them. If they’ll be good, He’ll be good to them.” (Jacobsen and Coleman, "So You Don't Want To Go To Church Anymore")
