Wesley’s Recent Updates

Wesley Ellis is now friends with Eric Peterson
Theology of Hope by Jürgen Moltmann
“That is why faith, wherever it develops into hope, causes not rest but unrest, not patience but impatience. It does not calm the unquiet heart, but is itself this unquiet heart in man. Those who hope in Christ can no longer put up with reality as it is, but begin to suffer under it, to contradict it. Peace with God means conflict with the world, for the goad of the promised future stabs inexorably into the flesh of every unfulfilled present.”
Jürgen Moltmann

Karl Rahner
“For it is the bitter grief of theology and its blessed task, too, always to have to seek (because it does not clearly have present to it at the time)...always providing that one has the courage to ask questions, to be dissatisfied, to think with the mind and heart one ACTUALLY has, and not with the mind and heart one is SUPPOSED TO have.”
Karl Rahner

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“Waiting is an art that our impatient age has forgotten. It wants to break open the ripe fruit when it has hardly finished planting the shoot. But all too often the greedy eyes are only deceived; the fruit that seemed so precious is still green on the inside, and disrespected hands ungratefully toss aside what has so disappointed them.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, God Is in the Manger: Reflections on Advent and Christmas

John Wesley
“What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace.”
John Wesley

Eberhard Jüngel
“Through God's grace we become those who believe and love. But in faith and love we who were once possessors become beings once more, and as such become those who are about to be, those whom God builds. We are taken away from ourselves to our own best advantage. Just for this reason we are free for the neighbor, free for the service of works.”
Eberhard Jungel, The Freedom Of A Christian: Luther's Significance For Contemporary Theology

Rob Bell
“Because with every action, comment, conversation, we have the choice to invite Heaven or Hell to Earth.”
Rob Bell
