Engaging the Kingdom — Overcoming Evil

“Our willingness to yield up everything when we are bidden to do so is our willingness to have enough in Jesus Christ alone, to desire to follow him alone. Our voluntary renunciation of counterviolence confirms and proclaims our unconditional allegiance to Jesus as his follower, our freedom, our detachment from our own egos. And it is only in the exclusivity of this adherence that evil can be overcome.”
— Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Discipleship
