Yesterday I mentioned my Lutheran upbringing and in particular, its characteristic doctrine regarding good works. In a comment that same day, I also said that I am not a Roman Catholic.
Nevertheless, I must say that I found the argument in this video to be quite compelling:
I'm still inclined to agree with Luther that our good works will always prove inadequate, but I also think he went too far in his attacks on the ecclesiastical institutions and other outward manifestations of the Church.
Religion, like Tradition, isn't something to be cherished simply because it is old or because it's the way we've always done it. Rather, it's because it can be a vehicle for conveying Truth -- both as doctrine (Prof. Harrison's "religion") and as practice ("religio").
I also cannot overlook the resonances between what I said yesterday about marriages ruled by love and what Fr. Barron says about the Church as family.
