Quote for the Day – Bishop Spong

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

spong“When we enter into the life of God, we can no longer call unclean that which God has made and those whom God loves. We can no longer use religion to suggest that there is anyone that God has made who is condemned to live beyond the boundaries of the love of God. Prejudice dies in that moment and universalism is born. That is what atonement is all about. How badly we have misread its meaning. God’s love is not and can never be bound by the limits of our love.”

John Shelby Spong, from this weeks subscription newsletter in a series on Matthew
