Clark Davis Quotes

"Missy could fall down and hurt herself, even if Im walking right there beside her. That doesnt mean that I allowed it to happen. She knows, as far as unconditional love, Ill pick her up and Ill carry her. Ill try to heal her. Ill cry when she cries. And Ill rejoice when she is well. In all the moments of my life, God has been right there beside me. The truth of Gods love is not that He allows bad things to happen. Its His promise that Hell be there with us when they do."

Quotes About The Gospel Of Wealth

"But this new class seeks to reduce the American working class to the levels of this global serfdom. After all, anything that drains corporate coffers is a loss of freedom--the God-given American freedom to exploit other human beings to make money. The marriage of this gospel of prosperity with raw, global capitalism, and the flaunting of the wealth and privilege it brings, are supposedly blessed and championed by Jesus Christ. Compassion is regulated to private, individual acts of charity or left to the churches. The callousness of the ideology, the notion that it in any way reflects the message of the gospels, which were preoccupied with the poor and the outcasts, illustrates how the new class has twisted Christian scripture to serve Americas god of capitalism and discredited the Enlightenment values we once prized." - Author: Chris Hedges
