Against unnamed grace

An example of Barth’s particularism:

“[T]he Lord is mightier than the sin which indisputably reigns in the Church, . . . He is the victor in the struggle against grace which is undoubtedly widespread even in the Church.” (I/2, 598)

Barth is against unnamed, generalized concept of grace. It must not be spoken in general term. Grace has a name and its name is Jesus Christ.

(Thus, instead of Takjub oleh Anugerah, the Barthian title would be Tunduk pada Kristus or something like that.)
