The Church comes into the World

November 6, 2011

It is not the case that in the person of Christ Christianity at one time entered the world and is at the hands of fate among the various peoples of the world. It is rather the case that the church, prepared in the history of revelation, became a reality on earth through Christ, not as something complete and accomplished, rather as something becoming. The church comes into the world; that is her history.
– Herman Sasse, The Lonely Way, vol . 1, Where Christ is, There is the Church
