Regard Everything Else as Darkness

He bids us fix our eyes and keenness of mind on the Word alone, on Baptism alone, on the Lord’s Supper, and on absolution, and to regard everything else as darkness. I do not understand, or care about, what is done in this world by the sons of this age; for they crucify me. I cannot escape or draw away that horrible mask which hides the face of God, but I must stay in darkness and in exceedingly dark mist until a new light shines forth.

Martin Luther (AE 8:33)
