The forces which tried to interpose themselves...

The Cost of Discipleship

The forces which tried to interpose themselves between the word of Jesus and the response of obedience were as formidable then as they are to-day.... Responsibility and piety ... stood in the way, and even the law and 'scriptural authority' itself were obstacles .... But the call of Jesus made short work of all these barriers, and created obedience.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship
