Example text

This term is generally translated as “Redeemer” but in Danish it is the nominal form of forsoning, which means “atonement” or “reconciliation,” and in the communion discourses it refers specifically to Christ as the one who makes atonement or satisfaction for sin through his death on the cross. 3. See Colossians 4:5; Luke 22:6. 4. See Matthew 13:44–46. 38 Part 1 Luke 22:15: I have heartily longed to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 7 For that he chose the stillness of the night in which Christ now for the last time was gathered with his apostles.

That no one who would speak the truth in an eternal sense can tell me with certainty which is which, whether it would actually be more beneficial to me that all my wishes were fulfilled or that they were all denied. And even if, like a shipwrecked person, I saved myself upon a plank from certain death, and even if my dear ones gladly greeted me on the beach and marveled at my rescue—that nevertheless the wise person would be able to stand by and say, ‘perhaps, perhaps it would have been better for you if you had perished in the waves,’23 and perhaps, perhaps he is just telling the truth!

Behold, everything, everything I see is vanity and vicissitude as long as it exists, and in the end it is the prey of corruption. ’20 Even if the loveliness of the field that charmingly captivates the eye, and even if the melodiousness of the birdsong that falls blissfully upon the ear, and even if the peace of the forest that invitingly refreshes the heart were to employ all their persuasion, I still shall not allow myself to be persuaded, shall not allow myself to be deceived, I shall remind myself that it is all illusion.
