my favorite part....

this might be my favorite part of "Forgotten God" so far, just because it speaks to me so personally:

"Nowhere in Scripture do I see a "balanced life with a little bit of God added in" as an ideal for us to emulate. Yes when I look at churchs, this is exactly what I see: a lot of people who have added Jesus to their lives. People who have, in a sense, asked Him to join them on their life journey, to follow them where they feel they should go, rather than following Him as we are commanded. The God of the universe is not something we can just add to our lives and keep on as we did before. The Spirit who raised Christ from the dead is not someone we can just call on when we want a little extra power in our lives. jesus Christ did not die in order to follow us. He died and rose again so that we could forget everything else and follow Him to the cross, to true Life."
