Whenever a theologian or preacher says, “You’re going to be surprised when you get to Heaven”, I often wonder if they think that about themselves.
This cartoon isn’t about whether there is a God or not, or whether or not this God is male or female, or whether or not there is a heaven. It is about whether or not the prominent preachers and theologians of our day consider the possibility that they might be wrong or only partially right and that there’s still a lot to learn.
Barth believed humility and joy were the most valuable virtues for a theologian. Instead, superiority and severity seem to be the favored features of theology today.
