Do you have times when so-called depression sets in, when you are feeling isolated? ... where our modern world says that you need to use its tools to help your "mental health"? Then our dear martyr Leonhard Kaiser has some counsel for us as he was being led to his death:
He began to speak powerfully in German, even with a fierce mind, turning his head from one side to the other, exclaiming: "Christ, you must suffer with me; Christ, you must get under me; you have to carry me; with me it is in vain and am lost.
- Psalm 50:15 – Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
- Martin Luther: I teach and preach the Word, may speak and write with many words: but he has proven to be a truly powerful perpetrator of the same Word.
(tr. by BackToLuther)
Leonhard Kaiser (Kayser).
The most perilous tribulation is when there is no tribulation. – LutherHow perfectly Luther tells us of our modern age, our modern theology, here in America: the most perilous tribulation" is when we think "there is no tribulation".
In the next Part 6 is the martyress Widow Wendelmut.
