Example text

But since under the circumstances the article could not appear and therefore did not appear right away, I decided that, after all, there was no reason to hurry. Then, too, Bishop Martensen's appointment provoked attack on him from other sides and of a completely different kind 15 ; I most definitely did not want to join in with that attack. So I waited; I thought, as stated, that there was no reason at all to hurry and nothing at all to be lost by waiting. Someone might even find that something was gained, find that such a slow emergence of the objection has a deeper significance.

This is not so. Neither in the article, in which only at the end do I refer to the martyr (but surely the martyr also belongs to the truth-witnesses, especially to "the authentic" truth-witnesses, or what I have called "the first class in the Christian order of precedence," in which in tum there are, I may assume, many more truth-witnesses than martyrs), consequently, neither in the article nor in the note to the article (both can be checked) have I made trnth-witness and martyr identical. In the note I have quite definitely pointed out the distinction between proclaiming Christianity in such a way that the proclaimer is "an officeholder, a person of rank, the proclamation his own brilliant career, rich in enjoyment," and a "suffering truth-witness," without in any way whatever asserting that to suffer should mean to suffer death.

Although the truth was that to a high degree he was worldly-sagacious, but weak, self-indulgent, and great only as a declaimer-and in a way the distress of my life (which nevertheless, through the love of Governance, in a very high sense benefited me, became a blessing to me); my distress was that I, brought up by my late father on Mynster's sermons, and also out of devotion to my late father, honored this false bill of exchange instead of protesting it. Now he is dead-God be praised that it could be put off as long as he was living!
