The great leaders of the people of God, like Moses, have always left room for doubt. You must leave room for the Lord, not for our certainties; we must be humble.
A church that doesn’t provoke any crises, a gospel that doesn’t unsettle, a word of God that doesn’t get under anyone’s skin, a word of God that doesn’t touch the real sin of the society in which it is being proclaimed — what gospel is that?
Archbishop Oscar Romero
Capital punishment is against the best judgment of modern criminology and, above all, against the highest expression of love in the nature of God” (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.)
When Christians have grown so bitter toward someone that we can’t even accept their apologies, something has gone seriously wrong. … We must refuse to create lose-lose situations for each other where one is damned if they apologize and damned if they don’t.
