A Two Word Missional Addendum To A Karl Barth Theology Quote That Puts It Over The Fence!

20121009_HomerunHere’s the quote:

“Theology is not a private subject for theologians only. Nor is it a private subject for professors. Fortunately, there have always been pastors who have understood more about theology than most professors. Nor is theology a private subject of study for pastors. Fortunately, there have repeatedly been congregation members, and often whole congregations, who have pursued theology energetically while their pastors were theological infants or barbarians. Theology is a matter for the Church.” 

 

 

Here’s the quote with my addition:

“Theology is not a private subject for theologians only. Nor is it a private subject for professors. Fortunately, there have always been pastors who have understood more about theology than most professors. Nor is theology a private subject of study for pastors. Fortunately, there have repeatedly been congregation members, and often whole congregations, who have pursued theology energetically while their pastors were theological infants or barbarians. Theology is a matter for the Church on mission. 

See the difference?

What do you think?

    PERFECT! The book of Job anyone? Or how about some books that may have been left out of canon that was established both times after the government took over. Mark and John need our prayers and many like them need our prayers. For they too have seen a great light, and know Love. Believe can be interpreted many ways too, so we must pray for all men. Our Lord would have, does. Remove the bushel so the light can shine from within, without? Oh well, Love wins, has won, is One.
