Quote of the Day

"To Jesus, God’s law was not written on stone or paper, but on the human heart. . . . To claim devotion to laws, rules, beliefs and doctrines, but fail to heal the sick, assist the poor and feed the hungry was then and is today nothing more than fakery and hypocrisy. He believed the rich should help those less fortunate, that those with opportunities should help those with less.

"Jesus was basically a liberal. He did not hate anyone, nor did he condemn those who broke the laws. If those who claim to follow him today would spend less time on rigid laws, beliefs, doctrines and hating those who differ and lived in his spirit, our world would be a much more loving and less violent place."

--Grady Jim Robinson, "Jesus Was a Liberal," Northwest Arkansas Times
