The Word of God compared to the Opinions of Men

“Here we see the power of preaching the Gospel. It is beyond all the might and the power of the world and of all creatures. Christ proves His ability to draw the hearts of men through the Word alone. In the eyes of reason, the preaching of the Word is unimpressive compared to kings and princes. But what are princes or emperor, yes, the entire world, heaven, earth and all creatures compared with the Word? They are but dirt!

– Martin Luther
