“One of the things I’ve learned in my spiritual journey,” writes
Viola, author of
Jesus: A Theography
as well as Jesus Manifesto, From Eternity to Here, Revise Us Again, and Reimagining Church, “ is the closer someone gets to Jesus Christ, the less judgmental, self-righteous, harsh-toward-others, and selfish he or she will be. Again, we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God. And we all need Jesus Christ to forgive, deliver, and keep us each day from both the defiling acts of the flesh and the self-righteousness of the flesh.”
