And, with The Apostle Paul, "I," Pastor "Chick" McGill,
"count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ YAHshua my Lord:
for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung,
that I may win Christ." (Philippians 3:8)
And finally, with Doctor Martin Luther, I say, "God who is the Searcher of all hearts is my witness, that I am willing to obey your [honor] in life or death, in glory or in shame, in gain or in loss--this is the deliberate determination to which I have come, and I make no exception at all, only the word of God...it is contrary to the will of God, that one man should be under subjection to another, in that which belongs to the salvation of the soul." "I do not pray for my own person, but for the whole Christian church--I plead for my noble and beloved [...] nation. I have sought nothing but the glory and honor of God, and the welfare of my fellow-men. I have never looked to my own interest, and God grant that I never may--whether my enemies condemn me or not. As Christ my Savior, prayed for his enemies when nailed to the cross, 'Lord forgive them, for they know not what they do,' so I will pray for [you, honorable Judge], and for all my enemies."
