Bonhoeffer on "cheap" grace

Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves.  Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, communion without confession... Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.

From: Dietrich Bonhoeffer "the Cost of Discipleship"

(Printed today in my church bulletin)
