A message for those seeking safety and security

‘Absolute safety and security can never be found – and should not be hoped for – in these human institutions and activities, but only in the Lord. For “living between time and eternity, between wrath and mercy, between culture and Christ, the true [Christian] finds life both tragic and joyful. There is no solution of the dilemma (and the tension) this side of death”.’

Robert Kolb, ‘Richard Niebuhr’s ‘Christ and Culture in Paradox”, Lutheran Quarterly, p 8.
