karl barth

“to clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world.”

karl barth was a rebel in the church. he showed resistance to his formal education in liberal theology and a righteous indignation to the sweeping third reich. he even went as far as writing a personal letter to adolph hitler stating his allegiance was to god and not to the führer.

i think this man’s attitude is a pretty compelling argument against nietzsche saying “convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.”

    So a long delay in my leaving a response, but here it is!
    I am no critic, but you have adequate writing skills, what I like is that you just get to the point of what you want to say instead of dragging it out, which kind of makes you as a reader want to read more just to see the other types of insights you have.
    This man sounds pretty interesting, and it’s nice because I’ve never really heard of him before so now I can do some more research.
    Keep it up!
