“Being a disciple of Jesus is not primarily a matter of getting the right ideas and doctrines and beliefs into our heads in order to guarantee proper behavior; rather, it’s a matter of being the kind of person who loves rightly — who loves God and neighbor and is oriented to the world by the primacy of love.”

James K. A. Smith, Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation.  Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, 2009, page 32.
