As Hans Urs von Balthasar says in his own polemic with Karl Barth: "When we say that 'the Word was made flesh,' we are saying two things. We are talking about a being (or a particular nature), and we are talking about an event (or a part of history).... "60 Attending to the worldliness of revelation necessitates amending one's talk about act with talk about the reality which is the source of both being and act; with talk about "that which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched" (I John 1:1).
104 Our time is conserved—as the time of expectation, as the time which hangs in the balance between the already and the not yet. The world must be understood, and indeed can only be understood, from the perspective of God's own relation to himself, just as worldliness can only be understood from the perspective of the church. "105 Every person is gathered up into the church by the fact that he or she resides in the space between the Ascension and the Parousia. 106 Barth is always unwilling to allow talk of Christ's presence to take precedence over talk of Christ's identity,107 so he consistently restrains talk about autonomy with talk about God's prior acting in revelation.
The implication is undeniable that Barth's developing dogmatic theology suppresses the need to formulate nuanced, autonomous, and systematic accounts of the natural and social orders. But we must call Bonhoeffer's critique into question at this point. "99 Barth's concern is rather in keeping in view the fundamental difference between Creator and creature, particularly since it is a difference which is also not a difference. In addition to Church Dogmatics II/l there is further textual Barth and Bonhoeffer on the Worldliness of Revelation 23 evidence to support Barth's defense that he has sufficiently, indeed abundantly, answered Bonhoeffer's objections.
