“Therefore no matter what happens, you should say: There is God's Word. This is my rock and anchor. On it I rely, and it remains. When it remains, I, too, remain; where it goes, I, too, go. The Word must stand, for God cannot lie; and heaven and earth must go to ruins before the most insignificant letter or tittle of his Word remains unfulfilled.” Martin Luther, Kirchen Postil, Mon. after Ref. on John 3:16-21, Plass 1:68, SL 11:1086ff.
