Quote of the day

My colleague, Dr Lincoln Harvey, dug out the following brilliancy from the Chruch Dogmatics recently:

"It is said that HF Kohlbruegge once answered the question: When was he converted? by the laconic reply: On Golgotha. This answer....[is] the only possible and straightforward answer of the truly converted Christian" (Karl Barth, CD 1.2, p.709).

Them is fighting words against individualistic contractualism, if ever I read 'em
