Luther on the Gospel

Luther on the Gospel:

For this reason we must note that if we do not uphold the Gospel with its own strength, but rather with our own resources, all will be lost, so that no matter how well we defend it, it will crumble to pieces. Let us have no anxiety that the Gospel needs our help. It is sufficiently strong of itself, and may be committed to God alone, whose it is…Hence it is a poor and miserable thing that this feeble rabble of sophists opposes it. For what do these poor bats hope to accomplish with their petty flappings? Let them come! By the grace of God they have no true learning…In all these things there is no better counsel than to preach the Gospel simply and purely, praying God that He will direct and lead us.
