THE DANGERS OF SELF-DETERMINATION

Bishop Robert Barron

Our culture is obsessed with self-determination: finding our own voice, setting our own agenda, doing things according to our own lights. But is this problematic? And what does the Bible have to say about self-determination? On today’s episode of “The Word on Fire Show,” Brandon Vogt and Bishop Barron discuss how, in the Christian tradition, heroes are never those who “find themselves,” but rather those who heed the voice of God and remain obedient to the mission that God has given them.
