Perfunctory Religion

“Until we receive Him, we’re dealing only in concepts and perfunctory religion.  When we’re tired enough of theory, we will receive Him.  We will simply do it.  This direct contact begins in the inner recesses of the soul.”

“Scripture has particular penetrating power because as the words on the page become thoughts in the mind, they develop the energy of the Holy Spirit.  Inspired words posess a spiritual energy such that, on erntering the soul of the engaged reader, it must necessarily work a transformation there.  The spiritual energy in certain scriptures keeps us tuned to a different dimension, without which we will lapse back into the Natural Mind- hardly aware that that has happened.”

Light in the Wilderness, M. Catherine Thomas
