Endorsing Candidates From The Pulpit Does Not Make You Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Yesterday, Garlow was a guest on James Dobson’s radio program where he outlined just what sort of sermon he plans to preach on “Pulpit Freedom Sunday” to urge his congregation not to vote for candidates that do not share his values and then compared the effort to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German theologian who resisted the Nazis and was ultimately put to death:
Garlow: April the ninth, 1945, a man was stripped of all his clothes, taken outside and hung by a piano wire. His name was Dietrich Bonhoeffer. We celebrate how great that man was and what an incredible human being he was and the martyr he became. Why do we celebrate his life? It is because he was a man of God who refused to succumb to the powers of the government that tried to control what he would do and say in the pulpit and in his ministerial and pastoral life. And so we’re attempting to see, before it’s too late, before it’s too late in America, to raise up a generation of Dietrich Bonhoeffers.
