Quote to Consider:
Martin Luther on Galatians 6:3: "... the
Apostle [rebukes] hard-hearted tyrants. They despise the weak and
demand that everything be just so. Nothing suits them except what they
do. Unless you eulogize whatever they say or do, unless you adapt
yourself to their slightest whim, they become angry with you. They are
that way because, as St. Paul says, they ‘think themselves to be
something,’ they think they know all about the Scriptures ... They
deceive themselves with their self-suggested wisdom and holiness. They
have no understanding of Christ or the law of Christ. By insisting
that everything be perfect they not only fail to bear the burdens of
the weak, they actually offend the weak by their severity. People
begin to hate and shun them and refuse to accept counsel or comfort
from them. Paul describes these stiff and ungracious saints accurately
when he says of them, ‘They think themselves to be something.’ Bloated
by their own silly ideas and schemes they entertain a pretty fair
opinion of themselves, when in reality they amount to nothing."
