Favorite quote?
“If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of Christ except the point at which at that moment the world and the devil are attacking, I am not confessing Christ. For where the battle rages, that is where the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the battlefield besides is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.” (attributed to Martin Luther)
