“The second thesis to be maintained is substantially in agreement with the first. As Fichte shows, freedom exists” (Page 63)

“The Church has her origins in the crucifixion. The fear and agony of death, suffered in full consciousness of the sin of the world and the absence of God the Father, tear open the entrance to a realm in which the Church can be established. Could she have come into being without the aid of the second Eve, whose willing acceptance of God’s command first opened up the way for the incarnation of his Son and was then remembered at the moment of the Son’s death-agony, demanding assent to this also?” (Page 38)

“am solely by virtue of Christ’s death, which opens up to me the possibility of fulfillment in God. I blossom” (Page 27)
