Day 37 of 47 days… 47 quotes from the new book The Potential of God’s Presence…

From Chapter Six – Facilitating God’s Presence

In his book, One Church Many Tribes, Richard Twiss states: “Because we are all so prone to be culturally egocentric, the temptation is to consider our worldview the biblical and correct one, shunning all others as unbiblical and wrong. Worse yet is our habit of judging cultural wayssongs, dances, rituals, etc. to be sinful when there is no clear violation of Scripture.”

Religion has more to do with a culture, whereas spirituality is more about the individual experience. William Irwin Thompson shares that, “Religion is not identical with spirituality; rather religion is the form spirituality takes in civilization.” I am not saying that religion is necessarily a negative thing, but it can become negative when the people involved are discouraged from pursuing God outside of the spirituality forms of specific religious cultures.
