Monasticism: Its Ideals and History and the Confessions of St. Augustine

By Harnack, Adolf

Description
Religion and Christian Theology Collection

Excerpt
Excerpt: The Christian creeds, different as they may be from one another, unite in demanding that faith must exhibit itself in a Christ-like life: that, in fact, Christianity only comes by its own where it issues in a characteristic life. A genuinely Christian life is the common ideal of Christendom. But what is the nature of that life to be? Here the ways part. The diversity of creeds among us is, in the last analysis, as much due to the difference of beliefs as to that of the ideals of life engendered by the belief. All other distinctions, in a religious sense, are unessential, or derive from hence their importance and their meaning. It is not only theological wrangling, nor priestly lust of power, nor national diversities, to which schism in the Church is due-they have had their share, it is true, in originating it, and still help to maintain it; but what has really divided the Church, and given permanence to that division, is the variety of answers to the question,-What is the ideal of life? It is with the relations of groups not otherwise than with those of individuals. Not theoretic opinions, but feelings and aims, sunder and unite.
