Thou Shalt Be Nice

"I realize that a lot of people who might gravitate toward a more therapeutic approach to life, including their faith, would balk at the accusation of works-righteousness. The key to my criticism, however, is that once you make your peace of mind rather than peace with God the main problem to be solved, the whole Gospel becomes radically redefined."

"One may feel guilty, but no one actually is guilty before God."

"Basically, the message [of the Bible] is that God is nice and we are nice, so we should all be nice."
