Four Theses on Grace

  1. Grace is not fire Insurance
  • The Pastoral concern about Indulgences.
  • Grace can be heard as “fire insurance.”
  • Modern people worry more about meaning than death.
  1. Grace is not material blessing
  • Some fill this meaning void by preaching material prosperity.
  • This has consequences as serious as the sale of Indulgences.
  • The way of the cross and the testimony of the martyrs deny this understanding.
  1. Grace gives life true meaning
  • We live our whole lives in response to the gift of Grace.
  • Grace is costly.
  1. God acts, what are you going to do about it?
