Notes from the study

"Religion tempts us to become more concerned with our pride-laced denial and self-exalting piety than with bringing delight to our heavenly Father, who takes pleasure in our pleasure—pleasure won at an inconceivably high cost . . . He delights in watching us enjoy what he has made, which is why we can so openly embrace pleasure. Even when he asks us to deny something because we have misused it, he acts out of a parental commitment of love and concern."
-Gary Thomas, Pure Pleasure (2009, Zondervan)
