Quotes to Remember From Untangling Faith After Ramsey Solutions:
“I don’t blame people for being blind to it, because I did the same thing for a really long time until I couldn’t and so I don’t hold that against them [Ramsey employees] in any way.”
“You can unsubscribe from some of these…extra systems, whether it’s a curriculum, or a megachurch, or an author or a speaker, or even your local church that maybe isn’t healthy. You can unsubscribe from that without being done with your faith.”
“THERE IS NO PERFECT PLACE, BUT WE DO NOT HAVE TO SETTLE FOR SUPPORTING PLACES THAT ARE ABUSIVE, UNHEALTHY AND IN THE END, NOT AT ALL LIKE JESUS.”
