I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Deserting the Gospel - From 2012 -
Worth Reading Again

Daryl Meyer has left a new comment on your post "Brett Meyer to the Intrepid Lutherans":

I've read this somewhere before. Let's see...ah yes, here it is:

Gal 1:6-10 (NIV) No Other Gospel:

(6) I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel-(7) which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. (8) But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! (9) As we have already said, so now I say again: if anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned! (10) Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.

Luther's comments (Kregel):

...the false apostles had reported Paul to be an imperfect apostle, and a weak, erroneous teacher; therefore he called them here troublers of the Church, and overthrowers of the gospel of Christ. Thus they condemn each other. The false apostles condemn Paul, and Paul condemneth the false apostles. The like contending and condemning is always in the Church; especially when the doctrine of the gospel flourisheth; to wit, that wicked teachers do prosecute, condemn, and oppress the godly; and on the other side, that the godly do reprove and condemn the ungodly.
