just one more way

May 2015 (11)“If there were 1000 ways to God, we would want 1,001.  The issue is not how many ways lead to God, the issue is our own autonomy before God.  We want to make our own way.  This is the essence of sin in the first place – trusting our ways more than God’s way.”

Persecution, Orphans and Pornography
