Suffering World

I read this quote today from the German theologian, Johann Baptist Metz:

"All religious people are running around looking for sin. Where is sin, we must get rid of sin. Jesus did not look for sin, he only looked for suffering".

Perhaps this is a key to the pharisaic spirit that still seems to be live uncomfortably close to the surface in most of our churches.

That is a great quote! Is that really his middle name?!
