I think the reason people don’t see the value in the story of Jesus is because they like their own story so much more. We like our own story, where we are the hero, and others are the bad guys. People can’t see the Good News of forgiveness of sins and reconciliation with God because, according to their own story, they are already there, in a state of flawless righteousness, and everyone else is “stupid” or “bad.”

How convenient.
