(4)   In stark contrast to the hubris (swelling, insolent pride) of Hitler's Germany, Dietrich Bonhoeffer insisted on living according to Matthew 20.25-28.  He would accept no title other than "pastor".  At Finkenwalde Seminary he "avoided keeping others in tutelage"..only wanting to "help them"!
(5)   "Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword...and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.  He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it."  (Mt 10.34&38-39)
