Four Theses on Grace

1. Grace is not fire Insurance
a. The Pastoral concern about Indulgences.
b. Grace can be heard as “fire insurance.”
c. Modern people worry more about meaning than death.

2. Grace is not material blessing
a. Some fill this meaning void by preaching material prosperity.
b. This has consequences as serious as the sale of Indulgences.
c. The way of the cross and the testimony of the martyrs deny this understanding.

3. Grace gives life true meaning
a. We live our whole lives in response to the gift of Grace.
b. Grace is costly.

4. God acts, what are you going to do about it?
