[Whoever takes up the gospel] must be prepared, precisely because of what he thinks and says in the practical sphere, to displease the masses… In such a situation a [Christian] person may easily become bitter, skeptical, perhaps even bellicose and mean. He may become inclined, as an accuser, to turn permanently against his fellow men on account of their lifelong folly and wickedness. Precisely this, of course, may not be permitted to happen. If the ethics of evangelical theology does not wish to convict itself of falsehood, it must be represented, for all its definiteness, only by the greatest serenity and peaceableness.
