Fr. Robert Barron on Why it Matters Who Jesus Is

Fr. Robert Barron on Why it Matters Who Jesus Is March 22, 2017

He is, as ever, very good.

I’ve always thought C.S. Lewis summary is clear.  If Jesus is God, then the gospel is of infinite importance.  If he’s not, then the gospel is of no importance.  The core of the gospel is and always has been “God became man, suffered, died, was buried, and rose again and now offer salvation to all who believe in him.”  It is not and never was “Niceness is nice” nor “Humans have certain intimations of the divine” nor “Recycle and respect diversity.”  Nor is it gun rights, libertarianism, nor “opposition to abortion taketh away the sins of the world.”
