Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “If you do a good job for others, you heal yourself at the same time, because a dose of joy is a spiritual cure.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Bonhoeffer was firmly and rightly convinced that it is not only a Christian right but a Christian duty towards God to oppose tyranny, that is, a government which is no longer based on natural law and the law of God. For Bonhoeffer this followed from the fact that the Church as a living force in this world entirely depends on her this-sidedness.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “So the fool, as distinct from the scoundrel, is completely self- satisfied; in fact, he can easily become dangerous, as it does not take much to make him aggressive. A fool must therefore be treated more cautiously than a scoundrel.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Perception, knowledge, and truth without love are nothing. They are not truth, for truth is God, and God is love. Therefore, truth without love is a lie.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Human love has little regard for the truth. It makes the truth relative, since nothing, not even the truth, must come between it and the beloved person.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Seek God, not happiness – this is the fundamental rule of all meditation. If you seek God alone, you will gain happiness: that is its promise.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “There is no worse sin than unbelief toward the gospel.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “My past life is abundantly full of God’s mercy, and, above all sin, stands the forgiving love of the Crucified.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “There is no truth towards Jesus without truth towards man. Untruthfulness destroys fellowship, but truth cuts false fellowship to pieces and establishes genuine brotherhood.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The wasted time we are ashamed of, the temptations we succumb to, the weakness and discouragement in our work, the disorder and lack of discipline in our thinking and in our dealings with other people – all these very frequently have their cause in our neglect of morning prayer.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Often we are so burdened and overwhelmed with other thoughts, images, and concerns that it may take a long time before God’s Word has cleared all that away and gets through to us.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “It is the characteristic excellence of the strong man that he can bring momentous issues to the fore and make a decision about them. The weak are always forced to decide between alternatives they have not chosen themselves.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Every moment and every situation challenges us to action and to obedience. We have literally no time to sit down and ask ourselves whether so-and-so is our neighbour or not. We must get into action and obey – we must behave like a neighbour to him.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “To be silent does not mean to be inactive; rather it means to breathe in the will of God, to listen attentively and be ready to obey.4 Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Meditating on the Word.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “It is only by living completely in this world that one learns to have faith.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “God cleanses and sanctifies us, comes to us with grace and love. God makes us happy, as only children can be happy.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Ultimately all authority on earth must serve only the authority of Jesus Christ over humankind.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Our salvation is ‘external to ourselves’. I find no salvation in my life history, but only in the history of Jesus Christ. Only he who allows himself to be found in Jesus Christ, in his incarnation, his Cross, and his resurrection, is with God and God with him.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “According to our text, there is no road to faith or discipleship, no other road – only obedience to the call of Jesus.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The right way to requite evil, according to Jesus, is not to resist it. This saying of Christ removes the Church from the sphere of politics and law.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Absolute seriousness is never without a dash of humor.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Ascension joy – inwardly we must become very quiet to hear the soft sound of this phrase at all. Joy lives in its quietness and incomprehensibility. This joy is in fact incomprehensible, for the comprehensible never makes for joy.1 Dietrich Bonhoeffer.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The limitation of the ethical phenomenon to its place and time does not imply its rejection but, on the contrary, its validation. One does not use canons to shoot sparrows.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The cross is suffering with Christ.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Only when Christian faith in God is lost do people feel compelled to make use of all means – even criminal – to force the victory of their cause.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “It is becoming clearer every day that the most urgent problem besetting our Church is this: How can we live the Christian life in the modern world?”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Prayer is the supreme instance of the hidden character of the Christian life.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “But the Christian also knows that he not only cannot and dare not be anxious, but that there is no need for him to be so. Neither anxiety now work can secure his daily bread, for bread is the gift of the Father.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “What we shall need is not geniuses, or cynics, or misanthropes, or clever tacticians, but plain, honest, straghtforward men.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The fact that we do not speak it but sing it only expresses the fact that our spoken words are inadequate to express what we want to say, that the burden of our song goes far beyond all human words.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The renewal of the Church will come from a new type of monasticism which only has in common with the old an uncompromising allegiance to the Sermon on the Mount. It is high time people banded together to do this.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Time lost is time not filled, time left empty.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Those who have found God in the cross of Jesus Christ know how wonderfully God hides himself in this world and how he is closest precisely when we believe him to be most distant.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “When a preacher opens the Bible and interprets the word of God, a mystery takes place, a miracle: the grace of God, who comes down from heaven into our midst and speaks to us, knocks on our door, asks questions, warns us, puts pressure on us, alarms us, threatens us, and makes us joyful again and free and sure.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” This saying, which is found in a broad variety of lands, does not arise from the brash worldly wisdom of an incorrigible. It instead reveals deep Christian insight.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “To those who recognize in Jesus the wonder of the Son of God, every one of his words and deeds becomes a wonder; they find in him the last, most profound, most helpful counsel for all needs and questions. Yes, before the child can open his lips, he is full of wonder and full of counsel. Go to the child in the manger. Believe him to be the Son of God, and you will find in him wonder upon wonder, counsel upon counsel.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a great realist. He was one of the few who quickly understood, even before Hitler came to power, that National Socialism was a brutal attempt to make history without God and to found it on the strength of man alone.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “While it is good that we seek to know the Holy One, it is probably not so good to presume that we ever complete the task.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “From this it follows that the Body of Christ is the place of acceptance, the place of atonement and peace between God and man. God finds man in the Body of Christ, and man finds himself accepted by God in that same body.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The more genuine and the deeper our community becomes, the more will everything else between us recede, the more clearly and purely will Jesus Christ and his work become the one and only thing that is vital between us. We have one another only through Christ, but through Christ we do have one another, wholly, and for all eternity.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The justification of my life before God is to live because of and toward the living, dying, and rising of Jesus Christ.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Many persons seek community because they are afraid of loneliness... those who take refuge in community while fleeing from themselves are misuing it to indulge in empty talk and distraction, no matter how spiritual this idle talk and distraction may appear... it is precisely such misuse of community that creates deadly isolation of human beings.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “There is not a place to which the Christian can withdraw from the world, whether it be outwardly or in the sphere of the inner life. Any attempt to escape from the world must sooner or later be paid for with a sinful surrender to the world.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “The gift of Christ is not the Christian religion, but the grace and love of God which culminate in the cross.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Human love is directed to the other person for his own sake, spiritual love loves him for Christ’s sake.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Come now, solemnest feast on the road to eternal freedom, Death, and destroy those fetters that bow, those walls that imprison this our transient life, these souls that linger in darkness, so that at last we see what is here withheld from our vision. Long did we seek you, freedom, in discipline, action and suffering. Now that we die, in the face of God himself we behold you.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “I am sure of God’s hand and guidance... You must never doubt that I am thankful and glad to go the way which I am being led. My past life is abundantly full of God’s mercy and, above all sin, stands the forgiving love of the Crucified.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “It is the nature of strong people that they can bring out crucial questions and form a clear opinion about them.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “And take up their cross.” That cross is already there, ready, from the very beginning; we need only take it up. But to keep us from believing that we must simply choose any arbitrary cross, or simply pick out our suffering as we will, Jesus emphasizes that each of us has his or her own cross, ready, appointed, and appropriately measured by God.1.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Quote: “Is it not a miracle that where Jesus has really become Lord over people, peace reigns?”
