Believers were not made for the church, but the church is made for believers, and is of no use but with respect unto their edification.

John Owen, The Church of Rome No Safe Guide; Or, Reasons to Prove That No Rational Man, Who Takes Due Care of his Eternal Salvation, Can Give Himself Up Unto The Conduct of that Church in Matters of Religion (1679) in William H. Goold (ed.), The Works of John Owen, D.D. (16 vols, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1850-53), 14: 502.
