“My friends, God is necessary for me if only because he is the one being who can be loved eternally.” (Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Demons)
“God has such gladness every time he sees from heaven that a sinner is praying to Him with all his heart, as a mother has when she sees the first smile on her baby’s face.” (Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Idiot)
“If it were not for Christ’s Church, indeed there would be no restraint on the criminal in his evildoing… If anything protects society even in our time, and even reforms the criminal himself and transforms him into a different person, again it is Christ’s law alone, which manifests itself in the acknowledgement of one’s own conscience.” (Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
“The awful thing is that beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and the devil are fighting there and the battlefield is the heart of man.” (Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov)

Compare this quote from the Bible with some of the lyrics from Joan Osborne's '95 hit What if God was one of us. It seems that the US singer got the message right.
“I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself up for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home?
(Joan Osborne - What if God was one of us)
If you found God and he gave you hope
Would you tell the world or save your soul?
If you found God, would you take Him home
Would you open the curtains or keep them closed?
If you found God, if you found God
Would it be your secret?

Carrie Underwood seems to understand that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life in her 2005 hit called "Jesus Take the Wheel":
“Jesus, take the wheel / Take it from my hands / 'Cause I can't do this on my own / I'm letting go / So give me one more chance / And save me from this road I'm on / Jesus, take the wheel.”
