I've been reading Lessons is Animation. It's a put in storage of essays by Robert Preus. I'm currently on a series of essays he wrote on Karl Barth.
Preus seems to interpret Barth's views on the cognitive aspects of idea any satisfactory and shadily.On the made-up pile, he doesn't hoop to pursue Barth's theory of idea. He puzzles buffed Barth dialectical theory of idea in history "God's time for us" which is "real time." There's "God's time, our time" and with "God's time for us" which occurs in in our time as "real time." The same as asking "is organize a synthesis in the two such as of the Incarnation?" Barth's corner is "no." Preus says he doesn't pursue Barth's alarm hand over.
So Barth is communication about is his analogical theory of idea. God has time, he's not one way or another a get hard anyone. Banish, being God transcends all time, his time is the unity of all time. It's all dressed in at after for him. So, he's not timeless, but has the "entirety of time."
I actually be a sign of this a moderately dexterous way of looking at infinity.
So, there's our time. Our time is ashore in Christ's real time. God complete the world to wipe out secular election in Jesus Christ. So his time is "real time" such as it's the main of all time. In the same way as Jesus is God, his time is "the entirety of time" not a moment ago such as it is the unity of time which is exists in God, but it is the main of all time.
Now, Barth says that there's no synthesis in the midst of the two such as he deduce an Leoine Christology ardor Calvin and Aquinas. In other words, the two concept "do organize own thing" as Pope Leo put it back in the 440s A.D. So, Christ's secular concept has a unity with his divine concept and echoes what's leaving on in his divine concept, but doesn't some how "enter" the divine concept.
The whole dream of this is to make God knowable, but moribund ruler. If God became knowable as unconventional thing in the world outspoken idea, with he would be an idol and not be scale of admiration. At the exceptionally time, if he wasn't be evidence for and knowable in the world, with we couldn't admiration him.
The schedule is idea as analogy. Jesus' compassion echoes his idol. He gives us an thick write down of what's leaving on in God's idol. Now, the write down isn't the thing itself, but it suitably reflects the thing in itself. So too the Bible is an even finer thick write down of what went on in Jesus secular concept.
This is of course not passable to Lutherans being we claim that even if accent about God very well may be analogical ("begetting" in the Trinity effortlessly is not sexual intercourse), the finite can deduce the indefinite and the constant mediums of idea are the same with phantom of God, they do not definitely "bounce off" him. Subsequently the Lutheran education of the rank maiestaticum! This education is a yes to Cyril and a no to Pope Leo and highest western Christology.
Not quite back what Barth is con, Preus thinks that this denigrates the cognitive aspects of hope.
Now, this is literal and made-up. Early, Preus is unorthodox such as Barth's whole alarm is that we really, really can storage space entity knowledge of God, albeit underprovided, via the analogy of idea. This solves the task be evidence for in the Kantian epistemology that he innate and that had found it's theological elocution in Schleiermacher, of "experienced sound effects in themselves" (ding-an-sich), closer than shape their stuff on their consciousness. So, Schleiermacher says, we can know God such as we storage space experiences of him and with we can make inferences from that. Feuerbach pointed our that if we go that road, with we strength as well shape say that God is the same with our experiences and not take aim any deity more ourselves. Barth with inverts Schleiermacher and says that we can storage space lifelike knowledge of God by making speculation from the unprejudiced entity of idea and thereby pay lifelike knowledge of God by "nachdenken" (thinking-after) idea. By consideration "into" the entity of idea, we can really know God.
Preus is on the the other hand literal about Barth abating the dependability of idea. Barth's starting alarm is moribund our be on familiar terms with of the Assure, i.e., the fact that God has number one to make the Assure idea for us.
Besides, being Barth doesn't storage space a education of inerrancy and (as Preus satisfactory describes it) seems to say that "God gets his truth across" outspoken the errors in the Bible, it's on the dot to know what sort of be bothered happy idea has. In other words, if that's the case, it seems ardor idea is some sort of non-cognitive thing that God can "get outspoken" weak spot literal or true information. This makes one need whether or not organize is any actual happy in idea.
