Managing Monday… with Karl Barth

Posted by on Apr 4, 2016 in Blog | 1 comment

Ask who the greatest theologian of the 20th century was, and the consensus is likely to settle on Karl Barth (1886-1968). Over the next few weeks we ponder a few significant Barth quotes. Here are three to help manage this Monday…

“Jesus does not give recipes that show the way to God as other teachers of religion do. He is Himself the way.” Karl Barth

“God has not revealed himself in any religion, including Christianity. He has revealed Himself in his Son. In Jesus Christ, God has spoken for himself, and we must hear that speech.” Karl Barth

“To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world.” Karl Barth

Well that’s enough to ponder for one day.

Nice chatting…

  1. Super quotes. They remind me of Colossians 2:9-10 where God says, “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness…” (NIV).
