Quote of the Day from CKB

Theology is right if it starts with Jesus; it is wrong if it starts anywhere else. The first, but not the second of these statements is, I know, an oversimplification; it is possible to start with Jesus and take many turnings on the way. But it will not do….it is still true that people start their
theology in strange places and build it up on foundations other than Jesus. There are

professional theologians who do it. It is sadder when those who are not professionals
do it, for they often do not see, and cannot be expected to see, what they are doing.—– C.K. Barrett
