It is possible that even a church dignitary, particularly 32 ● Hans Küng’s Ecclesiology prone to that kind of temptation and danger, may consider his human impulses, thoughts, wishes, and dictates to be those of the Holy Spirit. Here, as everywhere else in the church, the distribution of spiritual gifts . . 58 Küng admits that the work of the Spirit is absolutely necessary for the church,59 and it must always be directed to Jesus Christ, because the Spirit is not only the Spirit of God but also of Christ.
Küng is convinced that the holiness of the church can be understood only in terms of the Holy Spirit. The church is not holy by virtue of a morality of sinful men, which they have acquired by and through themselves. 19 The church is what it is because of God. The God of the Church, however, is Trinitarian, and this reality should be ref lected in the lives of all Christians. In other words, the work of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit should enter the realm of history in order to transform the individual life of every Christian believer and consequently of the whole world.
68 It is significant to notice that, for Küng, the church should never try desperately to find the word of Christ because the Holy The Holiness of the Church ● 33 Spirit will remind her of the Gospel. The church, however, must always be subject to the Spirit and should permanently listen to the Spirit. Küng stresses again here the Trinitarian dimension of church holiness as God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit works together in offering the Gospel to the church. So, the church is holy if it listens to the word of Christ, which is given to the church by God the Father through the Holy Spirit.
