Go Here...

...for some great sentences from Martin Luther! The Twin Towers will love these. And so will anyone else.

Then there are his lesser known quotes, like:

"Jerusalem was destroyed over 1400 years ago, and at that time we Christians were harassed and persecuted by the Jews throughout the world for about 300 years ... During that time they held us captive and killed us ... So we are even at fault for not avenging all this innocent blood of our Lord and of the Christians which they shed for 300 years after the destruction of Jerusalem, and the blood of the children they have shed since then ... We are at fault in not slaying them."
-Martin Luther, 'On the Jews and Their Lies' (a tract he wrote in 1543)

Or when...
"He wrote that synagogues and Jewish schools must be set on fire to "bury and cover with dirt whatever will not burn, so that no man will ever again see a stone or cinder of them." Their houses must be "razed and destroyed," their "prayer books and Talmudic writings, in which such idolatry, lies, cursing and blasphemy are taught, be taken from them ... their rabbis be forbidden to teach henceforth on pain of loss of life and limb," their money, gold and silver confiscated, and no safe conduct on the highways be available to them, because they have "no business in the countryside, since they are not lords, officials, tradesmen, or the like. Let them stay at home ..."

and
"If we wish to wash our hands of the Jews' blasphemy and not share in their guilt, we have to part company with them. They must be driven from our country" and "we must drive them out like mad dogs."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Luther_and_the_Jews (this is the same site that Mr Nick Hill links to on his website... I'm going to assume he didnt bother to read that part)

That's the problem with propping up fallible humans as some kind of shining beacon for your faith. They can disapoint you. Luther... um... shall we say, goes a bit beyond 'disapointing' in his hate-filled, genocidal ranting, though. Lionizing him doesn't do your faith any credit, frankly. Here's a suggestion: try putting Jesus where you give Luther a place on a pedestal.

Crazy idea, I know... move along, nothing to see here...

I'd hoped that the sentences would offer a bit of humour. Pardon my inconsistent use of quotes.

I don't regret posting the quotes because I still think some of them are stinking hilarious but I hope you'll be blessed by what you read if you ever come back.

All I want this blog to do is lift up the name of Jesus. Thank you for reminding me of His supremacy.

Yeah... oh Luther and your anti-semetic writings.... although that was near the end of his life and he had gone somewhat insane... did you know that by the end of his life he had trouble going to the washroom and thought satan was testing him by giving him constapation? When luther did have a succesful bowel movement, he counetd it as a victory over the devil. im not joking about that. he did go a bit wonky by the end...

Thanks brother!

The last quote was very interesting...'I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.'

Its amazing to look over the last 50 years and see the slippery slope of liberalism invading the schools...I guess bad theology does lead people to hell..wrong gospel, wrong Jesus, wrong faith!! How about calling the Trinity..."life giving mother, child and womb"...hhmmm I guess Luther was saddly right on that point. Praise God for schools and pastors that preach Gods Word!! Keep it up guys!!
