A Word from the 1953 Film "Martin Luther"

From Martin Luther's Debate with Dr. Eck as depicted in the 1953 film titled "Martin Luther":

"I have the right to believe freely.  To be a slave to no man's authority.  To confess what appears to me to be true, whether it is proved or disapproved, whether it is spoken by catholic or by heretic....  In matters of faith I think that neither council nor pope nor any man has power over my conscience and where they disagree with scripture I deny pope and council and all.  For a simple layman armed with scripture is greater than the mightiest pope without it."
