    grace means there is nothing we can do to make God love us MORE
    no amount of spiritual calisthenics and renunciations,
    no amount of knowledge gained from seminaries and divinity schools
    no amount of crusading on behalf of righteous causes.

    and grace means there is nothing we can do to make God love us LESS
    no amount of racism
    or pride
    or pornography
    or adultery
    or even murder -phillip yancey

    was watching oprah today, and there was an interview of a
    husband who had murdered his wife. He was a pastor, who had been depressed for a while. He finally snapped. while he was in prison, he prayed to God for forgiveness. He brutally murdered his wife and tried to hide it. Does he still get to go to heaven?

    i dont understand grace... it is truly much bigger than anything this world can imagine. All i want to know is how can anybody not beleive in God, not try to begin to accept and understand his grace?

    About Me

    Name: jamie
    Home: St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
    About Me: I am an American living in Ontario. I've just recently started going to school again for a BA in Human Services. I like mexican and indian food and watching tv way more than the average individual. I absolutely love talking to my parents on the phone and my brother is one of my best friends. I'm married to a great guy whose pretty much the exact opposite of me but he loves me and makes laugh and we have a lot of fun. I didn't always feel this way, but these days I'm feelin' pretty good. That's my life, welcome to chaos and order.
