Moral Formation

Theology isn't about saying something new, but about the way we put things today given what has been said yesterday. (Which is another way of saying what Barth said at the beginning of Church Dogmatics.)

Craig Hovey doesn't say anything new in this quote, but the way he puts it is as good as I've read.

...modern (secular, liberal) states morally form citizens who willingly submit to the state's formation on grounds that the state has legitimacy so long as it does not claim moral authority.
