“The only organs of the Christian” by Martin Luther

“If you were to ask a Christian what his task is and by what he is worthy of the name Christian, there could be no other response than hearing the Word of God, that is faith. Ears are the only organs of the Christian.”

–Martin Luther, as quoted in Timothy George, Theology of the Reformers (Nashville: Broadman Press, 1988), 54.
