In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther warns of the danger of ambition:
3559. He talked a lot about the ambitious and pretentious, as he read from a letter sent to him by a writer aspiring to wisdom. He said ironically: When the stomach is ready to burst it is time to get rid of it through writing and praying–and then he pronounced: Arrogance is the sin of the snake. (p. 132).
