Quotes to Consider:
Martin Luther: "The way of the world is such that
people cannot bear the truth. Let him who would live in the world be
silent about the truth. Let him tell dirty lies and engage in foul
deceit. If, however, you want to testify to the truth, then be prepared
to have as enemies the devil with his angels, the world with its wisdom
and its greatest intellect, nay, to have as enemies your parents, your
father and mother, and your best friends."
Martin Luther: "If I profess with the loudest
voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except
precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at the
moment attacking, then I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may
be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the
soldier is tested."
John Calvin: "[The martyrs] did not set us an
example of constancy in asserting the truth that we should now desert
it, when handed down to us so signed and sealed; but they taught us the
art by which, trusting to the Divine protection, we stand invincible by
all the powers of death, hell, the world, and Satan!"
