Dietrich Bonhoeffer is right.
Eberhard Bethge is right.
There was a POINT in standing up to the Nazis, where they had to NOT JUST CRY OUT, BUT RESIST.
we were resisting by way of confession, but we were not confessing by way of resistance
Bonhoeffer introduced us in 1935 to the problem of what we today call political resistance. The levels of confession and of resistance could longer be kept neatly apart. The escalating persecution of the Jews generated an increasingly intolerable situation, especially for Bonhoeffer himself. We now realized that mere confession, no matter how courageous, inescapably meant complicity with the murderers, even though there would always be new acts of refusing to be co-opted and even though we would preach “Christ alone” Sunday after Sunday. During the whole time the Nazi state never considered it necessary to prohibit such preaching. Why should it?
Thus we were approaching the borderline between confession and resistance; and if we did not cross this border, our confession was going to be no better than cooperation with the criminals. And so it became clear where the problem lay for the Confessing Church: we were resisting by way of confession, but we were not confessing by way of resistance.
Many of you are already not wearing masks, and fending off the Mask Karens and Bidenazis with this reason or that reason, but let’s ALL drop our masks and bring out a new reason.
OUR RIGHTEOUS PROTEST AGAINST ILLEGAL IMPEACHMENT.
Yes, it’s a small protest, but we need to start SMALL.
Please help me spread the word.
No masks will be worn by honest men or women during this illegal and unconstitutional impeachment.
The danger of the rampant nanny state now vastly exceeds the danger of the China virus. Remove the masks to save America.
Revolt against mask tyranny
