wrong view

There is a law of fairness that is higher and more absolute than God. It is binding even for God. God must act in response to that law in order to be fair. Our response is to appeal to that law.

The man who is a Christian feels that he is being held by something. It has been put to him, it is there; it may even seem to be in spite of him, but it is there.

It is not what he is doing that matters to him; it is what has been done to him …"
