Quote of the Day

“Wherever the law rules, works are demanded of which only the strong are capable: hybris and despair in transgression and self-righteousness are here unavoidable and the God who gives and calls for the verification of his gift is transformed into an idol who is only capable of acting as the referee of man’s struggle with himself and the world.”

Ernst Käsemann, “Perspectives on Paul,” p. 150.
