How many xxx does it take to change a light bulb?

I’ve been writing about T.J. Gorringe’s theology of culture today, and the idea of apophatic theology leaving us with a “pauper God” after Karl Barth. The silence in the Gospels is the presence
of the “wholly other” and this is like the hidden revelation of Barth. God is both fully revealed and fully concealed. It is also like the tension in the incarnation: fully human and fully God, and the tension in the gospels, fully a cultural construction and fully the word of God. Music contains both sound and silence, it is both revelation and concealment, it can be put into words and it is inexpressible. How far I think it can go with Gorringe or with apophatic theology is to be revealed in a later chapter. Silence
Answer: Two…One to change the light bulb and one to cast out the
spirit of darkness.
