1-2-3 Meme

I have been tagged for the 1-2-3 Meme by Mark. According to him, "The game is to grab the book nearest to you and turn to page 123. Find the 5th sentence and share the next 3 sentences with everyone. Then you tag five people." So, here's mine:

Life on the Vine: Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit in Christian Community
by Philip D. Kenneson

"But what if God cares about not only the decision (and what results from it) but also the kind of people we become in the process? Operating by majority rule in the name of productivity and efficiency also assumes (wrongly I suspect) that God normally votes with the majority. It seems hard to account for why Israel needed the prophets, or for the lack of democracy displayed when the twelve spies returned from their trip to Canaan (Num 13-14), if one assumes that the best way to determine God's desires is simply to take a vote."

I swear I didn't plan that!

So, I tag Steve, Thomas, Joel, Bill and Dan.
