    The God of the Covenant: Karl Barth on Creation Care
    (Religions; 12 (5) ) 2021-05 de Vera, Nixon
    This article seeks to explore the identity of the Creator God in Karl Barth’s doctrine of creation. Attention is given to his understanding of the eternal covenant God has made with humanity and how we are cared for within a covenantal fellowship. The study also concerns itself with how Barth’s distaste for the notion of analogia entis is somewhat unsustained in his treatment of creation. I argue that, to some extent, the analogy of being vis-à-vis the cosmos is complementarily employed with analogia fides in Barth’s articulation of creation care. This is the case as he reconfigures the talk on creation rigidly in and through Jesus Christ as Creator and creature.

    This article seeks to critically analyse the ever-changing Adventist stance on perfectionism from 1888 to 1976. The facts presented betray the seeming hands-off attitude of the church to address the theological divine amongst leaders and scholars after the Palmdale Conference. It is proposed to decisively settle the issue to mark a watershed for soterio-eschatological statements members can be confident of.
