On What Grounds?

“It is on the grounds of the character of God, not the status of the person, that there is entry to the Kingdom of Heaven. Indeed, so deeply ingrained is the belief that one’s status, wealth, and attempts at morality can unlock heaven’s door that these things become a hindrance.”

Rosemary M. Dowsett, writing in The Women’s Study Bible (Oxford University Press, 2009, NLT 2nd Edition).

(The Oxford Women’s Study Bible, edited by Drs. Catherine Clark Kroeger and Mary Evans, is a conservative evangelical study Bible with study notes and commentary from a feminist/egalitarian perspective).
