Thinking about God

May 11, 2011

This is why we love Karl Barth:

…the Holy Spirit is obviously not so much the reality in which God makes us sure of Him as the reality in which He makes Himself sure of us, in which He establishes and executes His claim to lordship over us by His immediate presence.

[Church Dogmatics I.1, p. 454]

Barth makes us think about God.
