Christians and the Moral Right of the Strong

bonhoefferorig“Christianity stands or falls with its revolutionary protest against violence, arbitrariness, and pride of power, and with its apologia for the weak. Christianity is rather doing too little in showing these points than too much …

Christianity has adjusted itself much too easily to the worship of power. It should give more offense, more shock to the world than it is doing.

Christianity should … take a much more definite stand for the weak than to consider the potential moral right of the strong.”—Dietrich Bonhoeffer
