When Martin Luther had openly broken with the church of Rome, and refused to recant, plots were made against his life. This led various knights to offer their services in his defense, but Luther would not accept their protection.

“I will not resort to arms and bloodshed for the defense of the Gospel,” he said. “It is by the preaching of the Word that the world has been conquered. By the Word the church has been saved. And by the Word, also, it will be restored. I will depend on none but Christ alone.”
