The work of salvation, in its full sense, is (1) about whole human beings, not merely souls; (2) about the present, not simply the future; and (3) about what God does through us, not merely what God does in and for us.
~ N.T. Wright, 21st century
People to whom sin is just a matter of words, to them salvation is just words too.
~ William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying, 20th century
