Reflection 11.2.18

We have imagined that Christianity itself is a religion of virtue. But no, Desmond Tutu reminded us, ‘Christianity is not a religion of virtue; it is a religion of grace.’ And there’s a difference. A religion of virtue says, ‘If you are good, then God will love you.’ A religion of grace says, ‘God loves you.’ God loves you despite your foibles and failures, not because you’re so good but as a sinner in need of mercy. God loves you; live then as one who is beloved, who has been forgiven.
