No shortcuts  

Posted by Denis Haack in , ,

I rarely read The Message, Eugene Peterson's (very loose) translation of the Bible, but occasionally find his version bringing me up short. Like in this case:


Do not look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Do not fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life -- to God! -- is vigorous and requires total attention.
