Luther quotes

“In the first place, dear friend, is one doing the right thing if one takes one little word of a quotation of Christ out of its proper context and gives it an interpretation and meaning that pleases us, without taking into account whether or not it is in harmony with text or quotation. Should one not honor Christ and his Word at least to such an extent that one should consider faithfully and diligently the entire quotation, word for word, examining it closely in order to see whether the quotation will allow for one little word to be interpreted in a certain way.” Martin Luther, The Keys, LW, AE 40:326
