Why I like my religion:

1) Heroes of faith: No pretenses. All the human characters in the book are severely flawed. I don’t have to be perfect.
2) Grace: Free. I don’t have to work for my acceptance. It’s all paid for.
3) Mercy: not cheap. The Savior paid the highest price anyone could pay for me—he died in my place; only he was worthy to do that.
4) The Savior: accessible. Stepped down from his glory and walked among us.
5) Classicism: nonexistent. In fact, servanthood is the highest virtue—anyone can practice it.
6) Presence: Holy Spirit. He is with me--I with him.
7) Forgiveness: Received. (And given), amen.

That’s enough for now.
