Creeds, confessions and theology

“Even when we feel we must hold something apparently or actually opposed to a statement of the confession, this statement is still before us with all its weight as the confession of the fathers and brethren and with what is perhaps a very galling definiteness. It cannot be forgotten even though at the time we cannot accept and repeat it.... We can never have done with it, because as a statement of the Church’s confession it has not done with us.”

—Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics I/2, p. 652.
