Religionless Christianity…umm…what??

The Rev. Casey is a fan of what the martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer described as “Religionless Christianity”. Believe it or not this has a lot to do with recovery, discipleship, and everything that will be written on this here blog.

So what is it?

Religionless Christianity means a new life that is free in the truest sense of the word. The community knows each other and loves each other in the face of their brokenness. “In the presence of a psychiatrist I can only be a sick man; in the presence of a Christian brother I can dare to be a sinner.” Christianity without pretense is what Bonhoeffer was after in this conversation.

What do you think? Worthy conversation?
