Another religion

"When Christianity becomes just another religion, it focuses on requirements. Just to keep people in line, we build our own Christian civilization and then demand that everyone who believes in Jesus become a good citizen. It's hard to image that Jesus would endure the agony of the Cross just to keep us in line."
-Erwin Raphael McManus

Whew. Been there done that...don't want to be that way anymore!!!!!!! Want to show grace to others instead of making more requirements, hoops and conditions to follow.
