Sample text

In other words, because the church is permanently a new creation,30 apostolicity consists of making Christian 42 ● Hans Küng’s Ecclesiology faith new to each generation based on the testimony of the apostles. Here is Küng’s detailed explanation: The apostolicity of the church consists in the enduring bond of the church with the service of the apostles and in the abiding agreement with apostolic testimony. Thus the apostolic succession first of all pertains to the whole church in all her members.

The Authority of the Holy Spirit At this point, it should be noted that the holiness of the church is ultimately a matter of authority. The final authority as far as the ontology of the church is concerned is God in his Trinitarian existence. The authority of God, however, is manifested in Christ42 because the Gospel of Christ is the very aspect that drives the church to its mission and also offers a solid basis, as well as a justification, for its existence. At the same time, the authority of God that is manifested in Christ finds its practical application in the life and mission43 of the church through the Holy Spirit.

Now, a simple mathematical calculation will show that the positive list includes ten elements while the negative list has fifteen items, so the things that unite Catholics and Protestants are not more than those that separate them as Küng emphatically claims. However, Küng’s conviction that we “must sincerely rejoice over that which unites us—despite all differences” because that “is more than that which separates us” should not be taken mathematically but from the perspective of their inner value.
