The Church Was Made By the Word, Not Vice Versa

It is not the Word of God because the church says so; but that the Word of God might be spoken, therefore the church comes into being,  The church does not make the Word, but it is made by the Word.

– Martin Luther

as quoted by Sproul, R.C.; Grace Unknown: The Heart of Reformed Theology; Baker Books; Grand Rapids, MI; copyright 1997; p. 54
