Rudolf Steiner: "Now humanity must strive to replace the Christ of oral and written tradition with the living Christ. In our day it is unchristian if you wish only to reaffirm what has been written or passed down for centuries. For now it is so that every day the revelation of the Christ speaks out of the spiritual world and into our thinking that is striving for illumination; into our feeling hearts; and into our will-filled knowledge."
