SIMPLE LOVE

The great theologian of the last century, Karl Barth, wrote a 10 volume theological work titled "Ethics." When traveling and lecturing throughout the United States at all the important universities and theological schools, it is reported that one young man asked him, "Dr. Barth, you have written multiple volumes on theology. But, if you had to boil down all your theological knowledge into just a sentence or two, what would you say is the essence of your theological understanding?"

Dr. Barth didn’t hesitate. He replied, "It is really quite simple. 'Jesus loves me, this I know - for the Bible tells me so.'"
