A Source for the Gnosticization of Morality: Fr. Karl Rahner (Part 11)

It is now time for a diagnosis.

First and foremost, note how God has lost his face. He can no longer appear to you with a face. For everything that comes before determinate consciousness must be finite, but God is not finite. In my opinion, this is the most devastating thing in Rahner. And it certainly sounds as though he is doing God an honor in the process. But he is doing you a clear dishonor. For what regards precisely human dignity – our rationality, i.e. our capacity to think being and thus to choose according to our thought – is hereby hermetically sealed off from the divine realm.
