“In the place of religion there now stands the church – that is in itself biblical – but the world is in some degree made to depend on itself and left to its own devices, and that’s the mistake.”
Bonhoeffer
“When it is said, Man is created good, this can mean nothing more than: He is created for good and the original predisposition in man is good; not that, thereby, he is already actually good, but rather that he brings it about that he becomes good or evil….”
Kant
“Hence, within Christianity these two tendencies always rise and fall together: the tendency to give pre-eminence to the redeeming work of Christ, and the tendency to ascribe great value to the distinctive and peculiar element in Christian piety.”
Schleiermacher
“…the true religion, which in its time needed to be introduced through such expedients, is now here, and from now on is able to maintain itself on rational grounds.”
Kant
“We distinguish by the name evangelical mythus a narrative relating directly or indirectly to Jesus, which may be considered not as the expression of a fact, but as the product of an idea of his earliest followers; such a narrative being mythical in proportion as it exhibits this character.”
Strauss
“A Church dispenses with the most important mark of truth, namely, a rightful claim to universality, when it bases itself upon a revealed faith.”
Kant
“I ask, therefore, that you turn from everything usually reckoned religion, and fix your regard on the inward emotions and disposition, as all utterances and acts of inspired men direct.”
Schleiermacher
“If a moral religion (which must consist not in dogmas and rites but in the heart’s disposition to fulfill all human duties as divine commands) is to be established, all miracles which history connects with its inauguration must themselves in the end render superfluous the belief in miracles in general…”
Kant
“Does the question about saving one’s soul appear in the Old Testament at all? Aren’t righteousness and the Kingdom of God on earth the focus of everything, and isn’t it true that Rom. 3.24 ff. is not an individualistic doctrine of salvation , but the culmination of the view that God alone is righteous?”
Bonhoeffer
“The Redeemer, then, is like all men in virtue of the identity of human nature, but distinguished from them all by the constant potency of His God-consciousness, which was a veritable existence of God in Him.”
Schleiermacher
“By and large, the fatal error of monasticism lay not so much in its rigorism (though even here there was a good deal of misunderstanding of the precise content of the will of Jesus) as in the extent to which it departed from genuine Christianity by setting up itself as the individual achievement of a select few, and so claiming a special merit of its own.”
Bonhoeffer
“For to claim for Christ the prophetic office alone means limiting His effective influence to teaching and admonition relatively to a form of life already in existence either before Him or apart from Him, and to a relation to God already established apart from Him at some other point…”
Schleiermacher
“As man, considered as a finite spirit, limited to his finite nature, has not truth; so God, considered exclusively as an infinite spirit, shut up in his infinitude, has not reality.”
Strauss
“Cheap grace is the deadly enemy of our Church. We are fighting today for costly grace.”
Bonhoeffer
