To nothing are people so hostile as to Christ.  Therfore they strive for nothing but vengeance, vengeance with all their heart.  The reason for this is the fact that the Gospel does not attack their purse; it attacks the highest piety and wisdom of the world.  These it intends to reduce to folly and sin.  That causes bad blood and is the reason why people cannot, and will not stand for it, as it is seen in the attitude of the Jews toward Stephen (Acts 6-7).  (What Luther Says #591, p. 203)
