Quotes 51 “Being religious does not mean that you suppress human nature. It does mean that we acknowledge it and not deny it. Then we give it over to the one who can help us control it.” Advertisements Like this:Like Loading... Related 2 Comments great quote. Thanks! Thanks Donita! I’ve been thinking a lot lately of what it means to be religious. And somehow there are a lot of us religious people who believe that we must suppress our human nature in order to follow God. However, if God put that nature inside of us….then we shouldn’t have to suppress to follow Him. But, we must let Him guide us on how to control it.
