The Gospel, the Bible and Theology

We affirm our faith in Jesus Christ, the living Word of God, and in the Bible, the written Word of God without claiming to have a full and perfect understanding of the faith we confess.
"the hesitations and doubts that are present at many points (in modern theology) do not in themselves indicate a deep and final uncertainty ... an alienation from the gospel." (A Half Century of Theology, p. 8, brackets mine).
"The confession of the testimony of the Spirit was not intended to give a rational and theoretical solution or explanation to the relationship between Word and Spirit ... the mystery of Word and Spirit remains unfathomable ... Every attempt to somehow clarify the mystery remains revealingly unsatisfactory ... The mystery cuts across every exclusive formulation." (Holy Scripture, p. 59).
