All of those are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don’t think my tradition defines God, I think it only points me to God.” ~ John Shelby Spong

    The words of John Shelby Spong is the truest word I have read. I’m glad someone has put it into words for me. If only we could live by this instead of disharmony and hatred among religions that is in the world today. thanks for shareing this.
