Prophetic Words by Bonhoeffer


bonhoefferDuring his latter years in a Flossenbϋrg concentration camp Dietrich Dietrich Bonhoeffer penned these riveting and prophetic words leaving an indelible imprint for the future of Christianity, “But if one day it becomes clear that this a priori [Christinaity] does not exist at all, but was a historically conditioned and transient form of human self-expression, and therefore man becomes radically religionless- and I think that it is more or less already the case…what does that mean for Christianity…What do a church, a community, a sermon, a liturgy, a Christian life mean in a religionless world?” (Letters From Prision, 280).
