Martin Luther Quote from Galatians 1|Kurt Steele
The world bears the Gospel a grudge because the Gospel condemns the religious wisdom
of the world. Jealous for its own religious views, the world in turn charges the Gospel with
being a subversive and licentious doctrine, offensive to God and man, a doctrine to be persecuted
as the worst plague on earth.
As a result we have this paradoxical situation: The Gospel supplies the world with the
salvation of Jesus Christ, peace of conscience, and every blessing. Just for that the world
abhors the Gospel. —-Martin Luther
