Brian McLaren On Loving Our Neighbors

I like this post from Brian McLaren on the Sojourners blog called, Religion of Mass Distraction. He says,
Those of us who see religion in a different light – who see religion as a powerful motivation to care for the widow and orphan, to seek justice and peace, to love our neighbors and our enemies – shouldn't feel superior, but we should keep practicing, and preaching, with humility and focus. It's so easy to get distracted, and a lot is at stake.

Well stated. I appreciate some of what McLaren has to say, but too often he has written and made statements that disagree with what God has said in His word. His words should always be measured carefully as he has a history of speaking his own thoughts on behalf of God.
This being the case, we can learn from him when he is on point and in this quote he speaks a great volume of truth.
