THE CHURCH AS DIVINE REALITY

 

Hoe behoort ons te dink oor die kerk?

Bonnhoeffer is iemand wat op ‘n baie besondere manier oor die kerk geskryf het. Hy het ook beleef die kerk deur apatie die NAZI’s se optrede teenoor die Jode in effek goedkeur. Tog kon hy nie anders as om oor die kerk in heilige terme te dink nie. Op WIKIPEDIA lees mens die volgende kommentaar na aanleiding van sy boek LIFE TOGETHER.

Bonhoeffer felt strongly that there is an empirical experience that results from meeting with others to become intimate before Christ. He suggests that Christians should confess their sins to one another. He states, “The church community, not some philosophical or theological system of thought, is God’s final revelation of the divine self as Christ existing in community”. In other words, Christians should not wait for a revelation from God before they do something, but because they are continuously and prayerfully considering what is right, it is possible that God has already revealed His will to them and they need to summon up the courage to take the appropriate actions
