Where the Battle Rages the Loyalty of the Soldier is Proved

"If I profess, with the loudest voice and the clearest exposition,
every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point 
which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, 
I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christianity.
Where the battle rages the loyalty of the soldier is proved; 
and to be steady on all the battle-field besides
is mere flight and disgrace to him if he flinches at that one point.”

-Originally a thought to be a quote from Martin Luther but was later found to be from an 1864 author familiar with Luther's writings.
