Luther on Is 34:17

lutherVintage Luther (in his quiet and understated way) in comments on Is 34, he writes –

He Himself has thus set the limits for the unbelievers and those who oppose His Word, and their lot has already been predetermined. Their reward will follow in line with their work. Thou art righteous, O Lord, who dost retaliate for all things. Let those who refuse to listen to God, the truth, etc. listen to Satan and to lies. Those who will not hear their parents belong to the hangman.*

Luther wouldn’t get along with today’s crowd pleasing Pastors/ Lecturers.
