Not a Religion of Virtue

Christianity is not a religion of virtue; it is a religion of grace. And there's a difference. A religion of virtue says, "If you are good, then God will love you." A religion of grace says, "God loves you." God loves you despite your foibles and failures, not because you're so good but as a sinner in need of mercy.

God loves you; live then as one who is beloved, who has been forgiven. 

- Desmond Tutu
