Nailing men to the cross

I've enjoyed teaching Sunday am class from Holloway's and Lavender's Living God's Love. See this link for reflections on the book from earlier this year.

From my reading for Wineskins on unity, here's a quote that caught my attention because of its strong mental image of the dark side human nature in the context of how we treat those who agree or disagree with us.
Clever legalists can legalize anything. They do not deny the cross; they simply nail men to it. To them it is not a means of ridding themselves of sin, but of a Savior."--W. Carl Ketcherside in "The Unrecognized Unity" reprinted from Mission Messenger (Vol 40, April 1965) in One Body Magazine (Winter 2005).
