Father Barron And No End
And it came to pass Father Barton told us Adam is a literary figure. Google it please, I have no time for the video link right now.
Let us think this to the end.
If Adam is a literary figure, then we cannot have inherited Original Sin from him. There can, in fact, be no Original Sin whatsoever, then there would be no single origin for it. But Originsl Sin is the reason why Christ died on the cross: to redeem us from it.
If, therefore, Adam is a literary figure, then everything can become a literary device. Did Jesus really die on the Cross to free us from… well, what exactly?
I suspect one could go on forever with this train of thought, and carpet bomb Christianity until only Father Barron and Bishop Francis thinks it's still the religion of our forefathers.
I am eagerly awaiting for Barton to offer retract action and apology.
By the way, his arrogant and rebellious statements are beautiful evidence that he is, most certainly, a descendant of Adam and Eve.
But then again, this is one who thinks hell might be empty…
