Deutsche Christen

“We want to try to make the German Christians declare their intentions. I rather doubt we shall succeed . . . It is becoming increasingly clear to me that what we are going to get is a big, völkisch national church that in its essence can no longer be reconciled with Christianity, and that we must make up our minds to take entirely new paths and to follow where they lead. The issue is really Germanism or Christianity, and the sooner the conflict comes out in the open, the better. The greatest danger of all would be in trying to conceal this.” (Bonhoeffer, DBWE 12, I/86)
