Example text

The Spirit of truth whom Christ sends from the Father will bear witness of Christ to the church, so that the church too may bear witness to Him . . The church is and proves herself holy by bearing witness to Christ and his Gospel in word and deed. 69 In this sense, the holiness of the church can and should be confirmed evangelically. 71 If the church wants to be holy, then it must not boast with its rule but show its practical willingness as well as duty to serve. Thus, holiness is interwoven with service,72 and service should be done “in the humble imitation of the Lord, whose example it should hold up to men, .

Küng also insists on the third dimension of holiness that is pneumatological, in the sense that the Holy Spirit must guide the church in all of its decisions. In identifying the theological, Christological, and pneumatological dimensions of the holiness of the church, Küng affirms the vital Trinitarian character of the church’s holiness. It is important, however, not to miss another equally essential aspect. 10 For Küng, it is clear that the church living in history cannot be connected to the transcendent being of God in any other way but through Scripture.

57 At the same time, the church is holy when it recognizes the Spirit of God and dismisses the spirit of man. This is just another indication that the holiness of the church is strongly anchored in the reality of God, not in the existence of man. Küng explains these aspects in the following paragraph: The spirit who guides the church should never be merely a human spirit, no matter how clever, or how experienced or versatile. The church must always be guided by the Spirit of Jesus Christ. The Spirit of Jesus Christ can indeed be mistaken for the spirit of man.
