“Especially among Christians in positions of wealth and power, the idea of reading the Gospels and keeping Jesus' commandments as stated therein has been replaced by a curious process of logic. According to this process, people first declare themselves to be followers of Christ, and then they assume that whatever they say or do merits the adjective 'Christian'.” ― Wendell Berry, Blessed are the Peacemakers: Christ's Teachings of Love, Compassion, and Forgiveness
