Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

As Christ's humanity after the union does not subsist apart and separately but in the Word by whom it was assumed, so also it cannot and should not be worshipped apart and separately either with latria or with hyperdulia.  For this reason the Council of Ephesus (anathema 8) and the Fifth Council (collat. 8, canon 9) agree that it is the Nestorian heresy to "worship together" and "glorify together" the Word with the flesh, because from this the dissolution of the person follows. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, On Christ, p. 260.
