One of the tenets of life for the follower of Christ pertains to one's involvement in this "life." It is too easy, too common place for the Christ follower to relegate personal convictions to a "conscience closet" where it is contained at a personal level but never sees the light of day the rest of the time. Let's face it, that is precisely where the enemy of our souls and the enemies of Christ want us to keep our faith. Thank God there have been a few faithful "Lights" willing to be shown for the darkness to see--and at great cost. "A major theme for Dietrich Bonhoeffer was that every Christian must be fully human by bringing God into his whole life not merely into some "spiritual" realm. To be an ethereal figure who merely talked about God, but somehow refused to get his hands dirty in the real world in which God had placed him was bad theology." Bonhoeffer by E. Metaxas p. 361 The Proper Pursuit of Prosperity (Tate Publishing)explains.
