“It is to be reinvited to believe, to be reinvited into the community of Jesusâ€™ followers.” (>>)
This quote troubles me.
I guess I feel like the commuity should be an entity unto itself, centered around compassion, and through that example people
would be led to faith. Belief should be (again, just my opinion) a personal matter between the person and
the divine. “Invitation” implies a sort of ownership; one is invited to a party, into anothers home.
If God is always accessable (another discussion for another time) then for man to invite his fellow man
into the community is worse than a breach of courtesy; it is in a sense sacreligious. More discussion
Well, he was writing about communion, so I don’t think he’s trying to say that priests or anyone else is inviting you to believe, but that communion itself is the invitation and Christ is the one inviting you.
See how things get wierd when alcohol is involved :). Just kidding.
