Joyless Religion

"Religion for them was a joyless burden, for they carried God on their backs instead of in their hearts."

-- Samuel Chadwick (Church Without the Spirit)

I attended a church like that. The list of all the things you could NOT do if you had their religion. Neglecting the list of all the joys true faith can bring.
