Luther: in the midst of your enemies

Saturday, October 30, 2010
    Commemoration of Martin Luther, Teacher, Reformer, 1546
The LORD will extend your mighty scepter from Zion;
    you will rule in the midst of your enemies.
    —Psalm 110:2 (NIV)
    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?
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546), paraphrase from "Sermon on Psalm 110" [1518], WA, 1:696, quoted in Life Together [1954], Dietrich Bonhoeffer & tr. Daniel W. Bloesch & James H. Burtness, Fortress Press, 2004, p. 27 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, remove our fears, and lead us out into the world.

If only Luther would have listened to his own advice , than his pride would not have lead him to birth the unbiblical "Sola Scriptura", which in turn gave birth to "moral relativism".
