… as explained by Andrew Root. According to Root, in CD 4.3 Barth argues the following about the church:
- The world would be lost without Jesus Christ.
- The world would not necessarily be lost without the church.
- The church would be lost of it had no counterpart in the world.
Humbling and thought-provoking.
Since I haven’t exactly started reading Church Dogmatics and expect it to be a few years after I start reading them (if I ever do) until I will find my way to 4.3, for now I’ll take Root’s word that this is Barth’s argument.
