Thought for today

Christ’s selfless love is an example of actively taking guilt upon oneself. Thus, like Christ, the individual engaging in free responsible action is guilty in one sense and sinless in another. Whether or not this is ultimately intelligible, Bonhoeffer believes that following Christ in this way sets the conscience free for service.—Bonhoeffer the Assassin?, page 207
