"Does not Wisdom call, does not understanding raise her voice? ...Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right." (Proverbs 8:1,6)
We have to become saints. We have to become like Christ. Anything less is simply not enough.
"Or at least vampires". Anne Rice
Well she used 'saints' with a small 's,' meaning followers of Christ. But I think she means 'Saints' with a capital 'S,' meaning extraordinary or martyred. Actually, however, I don't no the meaning of what Ms. Rice has said here. My question would be, "We have to do these things or what? We won't have access to God's grace? We won't go to heaven? What does "We have to" mean here?
I think she was just saying that it's important to take it all seriously and not just be nominal Christians. Or lukewarm Christians. Or complacent Christians. Or something like that...At least that was my take on it.
