"The life of discipleship can only be maintained so long as nothing is allowed to come between Christ and ourselves - neither the law, nor personal piety, nor even the world. The disciple always looks only to his master, never to Christ and the law, Christ and religion, Christ and the world. He avoids all such notions like the plague. Only by following Christ alone can he preserve a single eye. His eye rests wholly on the light that comes from Christ, and has no darkness or ambiguity in it."
Dietrich Bonhoeffer - “The Cost of Discipleship”
