"I fell to thinking about the passage in the Institutes where it says the image of the Lord in anyone is much more than reason enough to love him, and that the Lord stands wating to take our enemies' sins upon Himself.  So it is a rejection of the reality of grace to hold our eneemy at fault.  Those things can only be true.  It seems to me people tend to forget that we are to love our enemies, not to satisfy some standare of righteousness, but because God their Father loves them.  I have probably preached on that a hundred times."

Marilynne Robinson, Gilead, 189
