The death of Our Lord has got Garth George in a good mood. I can't really be bothered talking about the whole article, but here are some choice quotes that you can contextualise as you wish:
- "There is always a temptation - and plenty of Christians have given in to it - to use the words of scripture to suit a particular doctrinal, social or political position."
- "And that means we have to be patient and kind and generous and humble and courteous and unselfish and good-tempered and guileless and sincere, which is what being loving means."
- "The only way we can attract people to Christ is to be attractive people."
In other news, I'm running a sweepstake on what he will write about next week. Personally, I can't decide between gardening and rape.*
*In terms of what he will write about, obviously.
