Martin Luther on Bible Study

It is a sin and shame not to know our own book or to understand the speech and words of our God… especially in these days when God is offering and giving us men and books and every facility and inducement to this study, and desires his Bible to be an open book. O how happy the dear fathers would have been if they had our opportunity to study the languages and come thus prepared to the Holy Scriptures! What great toil and effort it cost them to gather up a few crumbs, while we with half the labor – yes, almost without any labor at all – can acquire the whole loaf! O how their effort puts our indolence to shame!

Unfortuantely, he was (is) right.

I too, am guilty as charged.
