a person never to be conquered

"A Christian is an impregnable person. He is a person that never can be conquered. Emmanuel became man to make the church and every Christian to be one with him. Christ's nature is out of danger of all that is hurtful. The sun shall not shine, the wind shall not blow, to the church's hurt. For the church's Head ruleth over all things and hath all things in subjection.  Therefore let all the enemies consult together, this king and that power, there is a counsel in heaven which will disturb and dash all their counsels."   


(Richard Sibbes, The Bruised Reed)
