The Hammer of Death


Martin Luther said: "As long as a person is not a murderer, adulterer, thief, he would swear that he is righteous. How is God going to humble such a person except by the Law? The Law is the hammer of death, the thunder of Hell and the thunder of God's wrath to bring down the proud and shameless hypocrites. When the Law was instituted on Mount Sinai it was accompanied by lightning, by storms, by the sounds of trumpets, to tear to pieces that monster called self-righteousness. As long as a person thinks he is right, he is going to be incomprehensibly proud and presumptuous. So, learn to do what Jesus did. Use the Ten Commandments to show sinners that they need a Savior, or they will perish. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
