“The truth of Christianity…”

“The solid, sensible thinker goes about Christianity this way: ‘Just let there be clarity and certainty about the truth of Christianity and I will surely accept it.’ The trouble, however, is that the truth of Christianity has something in common with the nettle: the solid sensible thinker only stings himself when he wants to grasp it this way. In fact, he does not grasp it at all; he grasps its objective truth so objectively that he himself remains outside.” (Soren Kierkegaard, Concluding Unscientific Postscript, 54)
