Karl Barth on Orthodoxy

Karl BarthThe catastrophic crash of orthodoxy in the 18th century, the consequences of which we still have to carry to this day, is no more puzzling than the collapse of a house whose foundations are giving way.  Responsibility for the disaster must be borne, not by the philosophy of the world which had become critical, but by the theology of the Church  which had become too uncritical, which no longer understood itself at the centre. – Karl Barth

One thought on “Karl Barth on Orthodoxy”

  1. Dear Readers who want to know what the Bible really teaches,

    Matthew 7:24-27 quoted here from The New World Translation Of The Holy Scriptures:
    “24 “Therefore everyone that hears these sayings of mine and does them will be likened to a discreet man, who built his house upon the rock-mass. 25 And the rain poured down and the floods came and the winds blew and lashed against that house, but it did not cave in, for it had been founded upon the rock-mass. 26 Furthermore, everyone hearing these sayings of mine and not doing them will be likened to a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. 27 And the rain poured down and the floods came and the winds blew and struck against that house and it caved in, and its collapse was great.”

    Jesus’ sayings are “what the Bible really teaches.” It is not a deluded message.

    Warm Christian Love in Proclaiming the Good News of God’s Kingdom,
