    A liar is far worse, and does greater mischief, than a murderer on the highway; for a liar and false teacher deceives people, seduces souls, and destroys them

      "A liar is far worse, and does greater mischief, than a murderer on
      the highway; for a liar and false teacher deceives people, seduces
      souls, and destroys them under the color of God's Word; such a liar
      and murderer was Judas, like his father the devil. It was a marvel
      how Judas should sit at the table with Christ, and not blush for
      shame, when Christ said: 'One of you shall betray me,' etc. The other
      disciples had not the least thought that Judas should betray Christ;
      each was rather afraid of himself, thinking Christ meant him: for
      Christ trusted Judas with the purse, and the whole management of the
      house-keeping, whence he was held in great repute by the apostles."

      -- Martin Luther, Table Talk, DCLXXXVI.
