Sample text

One of the most important religions in such zones is Islam, and Küng is very doubtful that the followers of this religion as well as of other religions for that matter will ever give up their convictions when confronted to the Western Latin Church. Moreover, religious ideas, race issues, and cultural problems are very unlikely to fade away in their fight with contemporary Christianity; on the contrary, Küng prophesizes, religious, racial, and cultural aspects will become instead even more acute.

8 Following the same reasoning,9 the church is indeed holy if the sum of Christian communities all over the world shares the same norms of conduct10 that evidently make the morality of the church11 a singular and individualized feature of their life. 12 The same pattern of evaluation should be applied to apostolicity. The church is apostolic if all local churches are truly one in their unity—a The Apostolicity of the Church ● 39 unity that brings together all local churches in true catholicity and also in the desire to live in sanctity.

Moreover, it is clear from Küng’s argument that these ten aspects that form the foundation of unity for Catholics and Protestants have always been like that due to the apostolic church that faithfully preserved them and then passed them over to the coming generations of Christians. The most important thing, however, is that these ten aspects are both features of the apostolicity of the church and the strong foundation of its unity. It is clear then that apostolicity is the basis for the church’s unity and that the two cannot function if torn apart.
