The Worst Thing That Can Happen To A Christian People

“No greater mischief can happen to a Christian people, than to have God’s word taken from them, or falsified, so that they no longer have it pure and clear. God grant we and our descendants be not witnesses of such a calamity.” – Martin Luther

From: The Table Talk of Martin Luther. Translated by William Hazlitt, Esq. Section “Of God’s Word”, Number 12. LutheranLibrary.org

Falsified:

“Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh… (1 Tim 3:16a NIV)

Unfalsified:

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh…

καὶ ὁμολογουμένως μέγα ἐστὶ τὸ τῆς εὐσεβείας μυστήριον’ θεὸς ἐφανερώθη ἐν σαρκί…

God help us.
