'bad people'

by Martin Luther 1483 - 1546

The Kingdom is to be in the midst of your enemies.

And he who will not suffer this does not want to be of the Kingdom of Christ; he wants to be among friends, to sit among roses and lilies, not with the 'bad people' but the devout people.

O you blasphemers and betrayers of Christ! If Christ had done what you are doing, who would ever have been spared?

  1. He lays a table for me in the presence of my enemies

    I pray not that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them safe in the world

    The husbandman let the wheat and the tares grow together...

    For the Son of Man did not come for the ones who are whole, just like the healthy do not need a doctor
