Example text

The pervasive inf luence of fallen nature is so strong that sometimes it is significantly difficult to perceive the Spirit of God. However, the church is not left without help in this problem, and the solution is not complicated at all. If confusion finds its way into the church, the church must check whether the spirit that claims authority over it is indeed Christologically oriented. 56 The test is simple: the Spirit of God is the Spirit of Christ, so the Spirit of God that should be dominant in the church is the Spirit who emphasizes the importance of Christ.

The church is not holy by virtue of a morality of sinful men, which they have acquired by and through themselves. 19 The church is what it is because of God. The God of the Church, however, is Trinitarian, and this reality should be ref lected in the lives of all Christians. In other words, the work of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit should enter the realm of history in order to transform the individual life of every Christian believer and consequently of the whole world. 20 Personal and Communitarian Morality Küng stresses that there is also an immanent dimension of church holiness and this is referred to as the quality of believers themselves to be holy.

In other words, local churches have the duty to develop catholicity in their practical existence as communities of believers50 by means of effective stewardship. Küng explains: This catholic manifoldness, however, is not only a gift of God, but it is also—and precisely for this reason—the task of the church. ) but, instead, it should be preserved and protected. 51 It has been shown before that just as the Trinity is the foundation for transcendent catholicity as gift of God, so is ecclesiastical pluralism—in The Catholicity of the Church ● 19 the sense of variety and diversity of local churches,52 —the basis for immanent catholicity.
