Theology is a Matter of the Church

‘Theology is not a private reserve for theologians. It is not a private affair for professors … Nor is it a private affair for pastors … Theology is a matter of the church … The term “the laity” is one of the worst in the vocabulary of religion and ought to be banished from Christian conversation’. – Karl Barth in Theologische Fragen and Antworten (1957), pp. 175, 183-184. [HT: Andrew]
