Two ways of thinking.
"There are two ways of thinking and of having faith: we can fear to lose
the saved and we can want to save the lost. Even today it can happen
that we stand at the crossroads of these two ways of thinking. The
thinking of the doctors of the law, which would remove danger by casting
out the diseased person, and the thinking of God, who in his mercy
embraces and accepts by reinstating him and turning evil into good,
condemnation into salvation and exclusion into proclamation." -- Pope
Francis, 15 February 2015.
