When we come face to face with our sin, we realize that we owe a debt we cannot pay. When we come face to face with Jesus, we realize that He paid a debt He did not owe. This is the free gift that saves us from hopelessness: we are saved by grace through faith working itself out in love.
Word on Fire: How We Come to Believe in God (Part 2 of 2)
This week, we share the second half of a talk from Bishop Barron on John Henry Newman’s book The Grammar of Assent. We shared the first half last week, so be sure to listen to that first. The Grammar of Assent concerns question about how we come to believe in God, and is widely considered Newman’s most important text.
