A MARGINAL NOTE COST HIM HIS LIFE
"In those days the most prolific printer of Dutch-language Bibles was Jacob van Liesvelt. Van Liesvelts final Dutch edition, of 1542,contained woodcuts and new marginal notes. For instance, next to Matthew4:3, a woodcut pictured the Devil as a bearded monk with a rosary and goats feet. However, it was the marginal notes in particular that aroused theire of the Catholic Church. One notewhich read "Salvation comes through Jesus Christ alone"was used as a basis for condemning Van Liesvelt to death.
He was beheaded in Antwerp in 1545." (9/8/02 Awake!)
Do you know anyone today that would do such a thing?
Do you know anyone today that would charge him with "causing divisions?"
Do you know anyone today that wont allow a person to "harbor private ideas when itcomes to Bible understanding?"
Do you know anyone that will behead (metaphorically speaking) all who arouse their ire?
