Dietrich Bonhoeffer preached a sermon four weeks after Hitler’s election. It was proclaimed at the Trinity Church in Berlin. Here are a few statements from that message…

The church has only one altar, the altar of the Almighty…before which all creatures must kneel…whoever seeks something other than this must keep away; he cannot join us in the house of God…

The church has only one pulpit, and from that pulpit, faith in God will be preached, and no other faith, and no other will than the will of God, however well-intentioned.

(Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas, 144).
