    Holy Cannoli!

  2. Aside from one reference to the ‘new learning’ on Paul, which seriously underplays, for example, the Apostle’s words in Galatians, this is excellent, and needs to be heard abroad. Thanks for sharing.

    I enjoyed this as well. I was thinking, though, about Tom Holland crediting Christianity with Western morality — that we supposedly value charity, love of neighbor, etc., because of the counter-intuitive ministry of Christ. I wonder what Fraser would say about that. Surely there is something valuable in actually accomplishing a good work, even imperfectly, and even if it doesn’t contribute to salvation
