Quote of the Day

Pope John Paul II
God is not present in idols. Your feelings are your god. The soul is your temple.
I have no idols. I admire work, dedication and competence.
We all have idols. Play like anyone you care about but try to be yourself while you're doing so.
B. B. King

All the idols made by man, however terrifying they may be, are in point of fact subordinate to him, and that is why he will always have it in his power to destroy them.
Simone de Beauvoir
I'm not a universalist, and the way I talk about final loss is this: People worship idols - money, whatever. Their humanness gets reshaped around the idol - you become like what you worship. That's one of the basic spiritual laws.
N. T. Wright

John Shelby Spong
