The Christian religion

Following Sean du Toit's post on the difference between “Kingdom” and “Church,” let me offer Karl Barth's assessment of the “Christian religion”:

“For the sum total of the qualities of even the Christian religion is simply this, that it is idolatry and self-righteousness, unbelief, and therefore sin. It must be forgiven if it is to be justified.”

—Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics I/2, p. 354.
