Quotes containing the word impelled


1. If your understanding of the divine made you kinder, more empathetic, and impelled you to express sympathy in concrete acts of loving-kindness, this was good theology. But if your notion of God made you unkind, belligerent, cruel, of self-righteous, or if it led you to kill in God's name, it was bad theology.
- Karen Armstrong, The Spiral Staircase: My Climb Out of Darkness
