"I do prefer this book of Martin Luther upon the Galatians, excepting the Holy Bible, before all books that I have ever seen." -- John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim's Progress
In my heart reigns this one article, faith in my dear Lord Christ, the beginning, middle and end of whatever spiritual and divine thoughts I may have, whether by day or by night.
From LUTHER'S INTRODUCTION, 1538
"In paradise, Satan shook this rock of faith (Genesis 3:5) when he persuaded our first ancestors that they could be like God by their own wisdom and power, abandoning true faith in God who had given them life and promised to continue it. After a while this liar and murderer, true to form, stirred up brother to murder brother, for no other reason than that his godly brother had offered by faith a more excellent sacrifice, and he offered up his own works without faith, which had not pleased God (see Genesis 4)." From Luther's Preface
Many people have confessed that by reading this commentary the Light of the gospel has shone brightly in their hearts.
The shallow lukewarm Christianity of today has fallen into many pitfalls Martin Luther here describes, even without realizing it; teaching actually the mixture; justification by works of the law and of grace; mixing New Covenant with the Old and are troubling (Gal. 1:7) the Christians of today to keep at least SOME (Gal. 5:3) of the commandments of Moses.
