The Central Logic of Christianity

The video The Central Logic of Christianity by Bishop Barron focus on the Book of Leviticus, participation of God and love. Bishop Barron is currently serving as an auxiliary bishop. Bishop Barron is the founder of the Catholic ministerial organization World on Fire. He was also the host of the TV series Catholicism, which was an award-winning documentary about the Catholic faith.  When we love we participate in the holiness of God. Some ways to participate in the holiness of God include prayer, the liturgy and sacraments. Testing the integrity of your love, you won’t be able to test it on everyone but you can choose one person. Is there one person in your life you can test the integrity of your love towards? To have God’s love, the divine love of God, we must love the same way as him. To love like God you must love precisely those who won’t love you back. This also applies for praying; pray for someone who won’t pray for you back.

The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus’ longest speech and teaching in the New Testament. The central logic of Christianity was when he laid out the beatitudes. This related to the Central Logic of Christianity in conjunction with ways to love. It mentions when someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also.This is teaching us to love everyone and not to fight back. In Matthew 5 it mentions “eye for eye, tooth for tooth, offer no resistance to one who is evil.” This scripture also refers us to love everyone. God is compared to rain in both the reading and in Sermon on the Mount. God is compared to rain because all good and bad plants all receive the same rain, as well as all just and unjust people get God’s love.

A way to turn towards God is with you mind, passion and friendships. They are also a place for dwelling. We are all honest, and because of free will we are all sinners. I agree with the statement that we should love precisely those who aren’t going to return the favour. To love is to break out of the black hole of self regard and egoism.
