Catholicism and a Personal Relationship with Jesus

August 2, 2019 No Comments

As a child, Michael Davis was scared of Jesus; the hellfire and brimstone preaching he was raised on as a Fundamentalist Baptist gave him a picture of an angry judge who needed to be appeased. He rebelled to the opposite extreme, for a while picturing Jesus as someone who never asked anything from him, and approved all his lifestyle choices. When he discovered Catholic Christology, it not only balanced his errant views of justice and mercy; it also took his understanding of Jesus from an abstract moral force to a concrete lover of his soul, and led him to have a more personal relationship with Christ than he’d ever known before, even in his years as a pastor.
