Quote, from Dietrich Bonhoeffer… The Primary Confession: ‘Word & Deed’!

March 11, 2019

“The primary confession of the Christian before the world is the deed which interprets itself. If the deed is to have become a force, then the world itself will long to confess the Word. This is not the same as loudly shrieking out propaganda. The deed alone is our confession of faith before the world.” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer​

*”Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.” (1 John 3: 18, NRSV) Or as the ESV reads: “Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” As the old saying goes, “Talk is cheap”!  It’s not that the Christian does not speak, but his speech should be with or in truth and action. The Christian must live an “authentic” life ‘In Christ’, a life believed and accepted as trustworthy & real! (Fr. R.)

Always, to GOD be the Glory!
