A True Reformer’s Attitude

“I would rather be joyful in God’s grace and bear the brunt of this temporal uproar for the sake of the Word of God — which demands to be asserted with invincible and unshakeable zeal — rather that, I say, than be ground to powder under the wrath of God by the unbearable torments of the uproar that shall be everlasting!” (Martin Luther, The Bondage of the Will, 90)
