Timeless Quotes: Karl Barth

“In the beginning, before time and space as we know them, before creation, before there was any reality distinct from God which could be the object of the love of God or the setting for His acts of freedom, God anticipated and determined within himself (in the power of His love and freedom, of His knowing and willing) that the goal and meaning of all His dealings with the as yet non-existent universe should be the fact that in His son He would be gracious towards man, uniting Himself with him.”

Karl Barth Church Dogmatics 2.7.1
