This is the deep genius of Christianity - that it does not deal in the cold realm of two plus two equals four - but in the realm of responsibility, decision, trust, faith.

Jesus is an enigma whose life poses a question we can explore to our benefit, or ignore if we please. There is no smash and grab raid on the human will: Christianity is an option, a possible route that we can take if we wish; a person is invited to pilgrimage into the faith like Abraham…not knowing precisely where he is going…only that the Christian goes with Jesus.
