“Every church I know claims that we are the true church. They have some ultimate authority: we have the infallible pope, we have the inerrant bible. The idea that the truth of God can be bound in any human system by any human creed by any human book is almost beyond imagination for me. I mean, God is not a Christian! God is not a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Hindu, a Buddhist. All of those are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition. I walk through my tradition. But I don’t believe my tradition defines God, I think it only points me to God.” \- Bishop John Spong
