Dietrich Bonhoeffer says: “Only the devil has an answer for our moral difficulties, and he says: “Keep on posing problems, and you will escape the necessity of obedience”

I love this from Kim Fabricius
//”Keep on posing problems, and you will escape the necessity of obedience.'”…that faith works, that if faith isn’t active in the hands it’s idle in the head and the heart…He [Jesus] addresses his disciples as people who have left all to follow him, and the precept of non-violence applies equally to private life and public duty…because the world is evil, [and survival of Body Mind and Spirit requires colonized people, culturally raped, coping with living in a systemically violent, invading, conquered, occupied country] that the precept of non-resistance must be put into practice…// MHO keeping sane and sober, for me, is based upon reality. I reckon Jesus outlined in the sermon of the mount a workable program and what he asks is doable!! I am getting boots on the ground experience in this: I find that God is doing for me what I couldn’t do for myself and others!! I reckon I am unashamedly/unapologetically becoming a Mystic and it [The Sermon on the mount] is a mystical Revelation rather than in analytical logical one. The program I follow in Alcoholics Anonymous suggests to us alkies that we will intuitively know…
