"Grace is a gift that only the nonreligious can accept. They're the only ones who can get it. They're the only ones who can use it. Religious folks see grace as soft. So they keep trying to manage their junk with their own willpower and tenacity. Nothing defines religion quite as well as a bunch of people trying to do impossible tasks with limited power while bluffing to themselves that it's working...It takes a whole lot more than willpower to get anything done in the human heart. You gotta allow yourself to receive something you can't find on your own."
