Bonhoeffer was pretending to be a pastor–but only pretending to be pretending, since he really was a pastor. And he was pretending to be a member of the Military Intelligence working for Hitler, but–like Donnanyi, Oster, Canaris, and Gisevcius–he was in reality working against Hitler. Bonhoeffer was not telling little white lies. In Luther’s famous phrase, he was “sinning boldly.” He was involved in a high-stakes game of deception upon deception, and yet Bonhoeffer himself knew that in all of it, he was being utterly obedient to God. For him, that was the cantus firmus that made the dizzying complexities of it all perfectly coherent.
