Topic: Individualism

Stuffocating

He warned against greed and storing up treasures for ourselves while calling us to care for the poor and those who are less fortunate.

The Birth of a New Humanity

When we think of the biblical characters, Adam and Jesus, we often think of them simply as individuals.

The Right Context for Redemptive Community

He started off by marveling at the amazing work of God in creating a human being. Our bodies and their various features are truly miraculous. Not only did God have an amazing plan for the human body, God has an amazing plan for the Church, the spiritual body of Christ, through which God intends to accomplish the reign of God on Earth.
