Barth: self-justification

Saturday, August 6, 2022
    As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.”
    —Romans 3:10-12 (NIV)
    The man who really prays never attempts to justify himself. In true prayer, he knows that he cannot do so.
    ... Karl Barth (1886-1968), Church Dogmatics, v. II, part 2 [1957], Continuum International Publishing Group, 2004, p. 752 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 3:10-12,22-23; 1 Cor. 6:11; 1 John 1:9; 5:16-17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I have fallen from Your will.
