Gospel Order

Posted on by David Madden

“…gospel order is, first and foremost, life lived in God’s transforming, guiding, and sustaining power. As long as we are trying to get ourselves or others to live up to an external code of behavior as the highest expression of religious life, there will be inevitable failure. Only in Christ’s life and power is there true human freedom and liberty. Friends felt that living in the power of the gospel was the way to overcome bondage to sin, unrighteousness, and all barriers that separate us from God. To live in the gospel is the way to experience the empowerment that allows one to embody peace, holiness, and righteousness.”
Sandra Lee Cronk 1942-2000 Quaker author, spiritual nurturer, teacher, and historian of religions
