"Mainstream Christianity glosses over the fact
that it isn't just a question of giving up sin,
but of doing something far more difficult -
giving up our right to ourselves.
The sin life in us must be transformed
into the spiritual life....
through sacrifice and obedience.
"She laughed with delight.'You're so different these days.'
He laughed with her.'I pray so,' he said."
