Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

If we wish to examine the facts, they are more correctly called "Papists" after their pope than we are called "Lutherans" after Luther.  They acknowledge the pope as the head of the their church, as the infallible judge in all controversies... We, on the other hand, attribute no such honor to Luther.  -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, On the Church, p. 293.
