Quote of the Day from CKB

CK-Barrett--007

It is not faith in any old God we have conjured up in our minds. It is based upon the fact that God has revealed himself in the life and death and resurrection of Jesus. There one may see and know God. ‘He that has seen me has seen the Father’. God has spoken in flesh and blood. Not in philosophy, for that would leave some of us out, not in spiritual experience, because so would that, but in bones and blood, life and death, precisely what we all have. Nietzsche once said, ‘How curious that when God wanted to reveal himself he should learn Greek for the purpose, and that he should learn it so badly.’ But that was not the language of God’s revelation. If it were you would all have to learn Greek. The language of God’s revelation is simply—- human life. CKB
