What Will You Say?

But there comes a point – and no theologian can evade it – at which theology does become dangerous and suspect. This is the point where the twofold question arises: What are you going to say? Not as one who knows the Bible or Thomas or the Reformers or the older Blumhardt, but responsibly and seriously as one who stands by the words that are said: you? And what are you going to say? Not how impressively or how clearly or how well adapted to your hearers and to the present age – these are all secondary concerns – but what? 

– Karl Barth, The Gottingen Dogmatics, pg. 5-6
