David Steindl-Rast Quotes

One Quote by: Br. David Steindl-Rast of Benedictine Monk

Unfortunately, over the course of the centuries, this {Christianity} has come to be presented in almost legal language, as if it were some sort of transaction, a deal with God; there was this gap between us and God, somebody had to make up for it—all that business. We can drop that. The legal metaphor seems to have helped other generations. Fine. Anything that helps is fine. But once it {the atonement} gets in the way, as it does today, we should drop it.
