Thought Provoking

“Something is radically wrong when the local church rejects a person accepted by Jesus – when a harsh, judgmental, unforgiving sentence is passed on homosexuals; when a divorcee’ is denied communion; when the child of a prostitute is refused baptism; when an unlaicized priest if forbidden the sacraments.  Jesus comes to the ungodly, even on Sunday morning.  His coming ends ungodliness and makes us worthy.  Otherwise, we are establishing at the heart of Christianity an utterly ungodly and unworthy preoccupation with works.”  Brennan Manning – The Ragamuffin Gospel
