Self-sacrificing love as the ultimate contrarian belief

Polish priest Maximilian Kolbe. His story of giving his life for another is a powerful reminder of the fundamental idea of Christianity that stands in stark contrast to human inclinations.

This is the eleventh post in the series on the good I find in specific Christian beliefs. Again, this is not about truth or untruth, nor about justification for these beliefs. This is about whether these beliefs which I consider important to Christian teaching, better enable one to live a full and fulfilling life in the brief days we have on this planet.
