Owen Barfield Quote of the Day (11/16/12)


What is peculiar in Christianity is the nexus . . . between the Second Person of the Trinity [Christ, the Logos] and a certain historical event in time. For the Christian, accordingly, religion can never be simply the direct relation between his individual soul and the eternal Trinity. As long as we ourselves are occupying a standpoint in time, so long, interposed between the First and Third Persons, all history, in a manner lies.—Owen Barfield (Saving the Appearances 165)
