Quotes for the Day

Commenting on Joel Osteen
"God is a buddy or partner who exists primarily to make sure we are happy. 'You do your part, and God will do His part.' 'Sure we have our faults,' he says, but 'the good news is, God loves us anyway.'"

"'If you simply obey His commands, He will change things in your favor.' That's all: simply obey His commands."

"It may be Law Lite, but make no mistake about it: behind a smiling Boomer evangelicalism that eschews any talk of God's wrath, there is a determination to assimilate the Gospel to law, an announcement of victory to a call to be victorious, indicatives to imperatives, Good News to good advice."
The last quote may be heard almost anywhere and to say so is to be "viewed as troublesome."
