Luther quotes

“A Christian should be so disposed that he will suffer every evil and injustice without avenging himself; neither will he seek legal redress in the courts that have no need of temporal authority and law for his own sake. On behalf of others, however, he may and should seek vengeance, justice, attraction, and help, and do as much as he can to achieve it.” ML, Temporal Authority: To what Extent Should It Be Obeyed, LW, AE, 45:101
