Yes or no?
Jesus’s command forces the hearer to decision, to a stark “yes” or “no” response to his call. But if we refuse to be led through this break with given worldly ties, then we have already refused our allegiance. We have failed both to believe and obey. Christ’s call has not formed us as it could have, and thus we fail to see reality as it is in truth.—Bonhoeffer as quoted in Bonhoeffer the Assassin?, page 149
