Luther quotes

“But the first and foremost of all on which everything else depends, is the teaching of the Word of God. For we teach with the Word, we consecrate with the Word, we bind and absolve sins by the Word, we baptize with the Word, we sacrifice with the Word, we judge all things by the Word. Therefore, when we grant the Word to anyone, we cannot deny anything to him pertaining to the exercise of his priesthood.” Martin Luther, Concerning the Ministry, Luther's Works, American Edition, 40:21
