High crime? – William Tyndale

On October 6, 1536, William Tyndale, a man to whom you owe more than you may ever know, was strangled to death while tied at the stake, and then his dead body was burned.

His crime; translating the Holy Bible into English.

The fact that you have a Bible in our language is largely due to his labors, and many of the very phrases you read in it retain the flavor of his understanding of the Greek and Hebrew.

Therefore, let us not take for granted all that we have.

Let us also fully know we have a mortal enemy who prefers to work incognito. Satan is crafty and often warps the minds of men and women with his cunning and wicked enticements.

Just think, that the English Church / Rulers found it just in their eyes to commit such a murder. As did the Jews and Romans did so to Christ.

Yes, governments and societies can be wrong, dead wrong.
