Dietrich Bonhoeffer

German theologian
The followers of Christ have been called to peace. . . . And they must not only have peace but make it. And to that end they renounce all violence and tumult. In the cause of Christ nothing is to be gained by such methods . . . . His disciples keep the peace by choosing to endure suffering themselves rather than inflict it on others. They maintain fellowship where others would break it off. They renounce hatred and wrong. In so doing they overcome evil with good, and establish the peace of God in the midst of a world oMore Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Christian brotherhood is not an ideal which we must realize; it is rather a reality created by God in Christ in which we may participate.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Thinking in terms of two realms understands the paired concepts worldy-Christia n, natural-superna tural, profane-sacred, rational-revela tions, as ultimate static opposites...and fails to recognize the original unity of these opposites in the Christ-reality.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The child asks of the Father whom he knows. Thus, the essence of Christian prayer is not general adoration, but definite, concrete petition. The right way to approach God is to stretch out our hands and ask of One who we know has the heart of a Father.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Why do Christians sing when they are together? The reason is, quite simply, because in singing together it is possible for them to speak and pray the same Word at the same time; in other words, because here they can unite in the Word.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
