Bonhoeffer and the Word of God

But to deviate from the truth for the sake of some prospect of hope of our own can never be wise, however slight that deviation might be. It is not our judgement of the situation which can never show us what is wise, but only the truth of the Word of God. Here alone lies promise of God’s faithfulness and help. It will always be true that the wisest course for the disciple is always to abide solely in the Word of God in all simplicity.

-Dietrich Bonhoeffer
