the cost of domesticating your Savior

One of the dangers of the secular world is that we domesticate Jesus, we turn Him into a mildly interesting first-century spiritual teacher. And the whole point of evangelization is that Jesus is not just that. Jesus is the Son of God incarnate, crucified and risen from the dead and therefore Lord of the world. There’s a very strange, off-putting, disturbing, unexpected sort of message. If you domesticate Jesus, you take all the evangelical bite out of Christianity.
-- Fr. Robert Barron
