Luther For the Dinner Table

Taken as a whole, we Christians are just like the natural human body, which, so long as it is on earth, is never entirely pure, neither internally nor externally. Inwardly it is impure, for there it is full of mucus, snot, ulcers, pus, excrement, filth, and stench. Outwardly it is mangy, scurfy, lousy, and scabby; has dripping, oozing eyes and ears; and the longer it lives, the less that is beautiful and pure remains. But we know that the Christian’s body shall become beautiful and pure in the next life, and much brighter and purer than the bright sun is now. — Martin Luther
