"Happy is the expositor who can have at least relative certainty at any point! No one should boast that he has said the last word, that he has spoken with absolute accuracy or authority, on any text. No one should laud another for so doing. The more definitely an expositor thinks he has found or not found this or that in a text, the more sharply he should let the question be put to him whether he has not been too clever and found too much, or too obtuse and found too little; whether he has not found what is not there, or perhaps failed to find what is." Karl Barth on exegetical humility.

"In having themselves baptized the acknowledged that to wish to sin and to commit sin is a possibility which is closed to them." Karl Barth

"He who had come as Judge allowed Himself to be judged & executed as the One condemned & rejected in place of all the rest. He allowed that which all the rest had merited to be visited on Himself." Karl Barth on substitutionary atonement.

When I'm stupid or wrong I hope my friends don't think they're loving me by offering unqualified agreement & "support."

"The baptism of Jesus is quite plainly the act of obedience in which he entered upon His ministry & way of life in a manner typical & decisive for all that was to follow." Karl Barth

"Every human wish dream that is injected into the Christian community is a hindrance to genuine community and must he banished if genuine community is to survive. He who lives his dream of a community more than the Christian community itself becomes a destroyer of the latter, even though his personal intentions may be ever so honest and earnest and sacrificial." Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"The Jews are the original stem, while we poor Gentiles are ingrafted branches. If this unity is broken either on the one side or the other, it is no longer the Church of Jesus Christ." Karl Barth

"Was not [human] sin uncovered and brought to light in its whole horror and shame only when, according to God's just judgment, no less was needed than the sacrifice of His own Son to free [people] from it?" Karl Barth, working from solution to plight, rather than the other way around.

When we take the linguistic community of the entity the Christian narrative calls "World" to be monolithic, we do so at our peril.

If we only have friends who agree with us all the time, we are impoverished and likely to be led astray.

"When the good news of God's rectifying righteousness, & consequently of the remission of sins, proves true, then nothing remains for [us] but the astonished joy of faith." Karl Barth
