This pretty much says it all | Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Wow…

In My Father's House

I would like to post a lengthy quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer. This comes from his classic book, Ethics. I saw this quote in William Paul Young’s latest book, “Lies We Believe about God.”

I’m posting this because it not only fits my current series, “Jesus Christ: Savior of the World,” but it pretty much sums up my theology. Enjoy!

Tends toward TMI, so here's the short list: guitar and banjo (both of which have been much neglected as of late), bicycling (ibid), dogs, very black tea, and contemplating and commenting on deep philosophical thoughts about which I have had no academic or professional training. Oh, also reading, writing, but I shy away from arithmetic.

  1. This is a theology that says everyone will be saved? Is that right? I love The Shack. A wonderful book that portrays the Trinity beautifully, I think. But universal salvation was not taught by Jesus.

  2. I read it again. He says everyone in the world is reconciled to God through Jesus’ death. But perhaps he might mean that a person must accept this reconciliation. It is just a quote, not the whole thing. I’ve been wanting to read some of his books, so I’ll see what he says about it. I know he was a brave martyr for God.
