Dietrich Bonhoeffer realized eventually that he must have a more active involvement in the conspiracy against Adolf Hitler. Bonhoeffer’s good friend, Eberhard Bethge put it this way

Bonhoeffer introduced us in 1935 to the problem of what we do today call political resistance…The escalating persecution of the Jews generated an increasingly hostile situation, especially for Bonhoeffer himself. We now realized that mere confession, no matter how courageous, inescapably meant complicity with the murderers. 

(Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas, 358).
