Many years ago when I worked at LSU there was a big push on the part of the “non-denominational” church on campus to recruit Catholics. At one point I engaged in a debate with their minister about certain points in the Bible. Looking back it was a mistake. Few there are they come to faith because they are convinced by an argument. The opponents of Jesus debated him frequently — not in order to understand him but because they wanted to convince him of their point of view. That eventually broke all communication. They no longer dared to ask him anything. In our polarized age we need to find a way of dialogue which genuinely hears the other and strives to understand what the other sees.
