Søren Kierkegaard Quote
My hearers, this discourse has not wandered out into the world to look for conflict, it has not tried to get the better of anybody, it has not even tried to uphold anybody, as though there was battle without. It has spoken to you; not by way of explaining anything to you, but trying to speak secretly with you about your relationship to that secret wisdom mentioned in our text. Oh that nothing may upset you in respect to this, neither life nor death nor things present nor things to come nor any other creature (Romans 8:38) –not this discourse, which, though it may have profited you nothing, yet has striven for what after all is the first and the last, to help you have what the Scripture calls faith in yourself before God (Romans 14:22).
P. 173 - Sermon Preached at Trinitatis Kirke, 1844
