Luther

A Martin Luther Eleventary

Luther

  1. “Hier stehe ich; Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen!”
  1. “If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every part of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, then I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Him. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all battlefields besides is merely flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point”
  1. “I am more afraid of my own heart than of the Pope and all his cardinals. I have within me the great Pope: Self. I more fear what is within me than anything that might come from without.”
  1. “Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.”
  1. “For where God built a church, there the Devil would also build a chapel.”
  1. “I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.”
  1. “Music is the art of the prophets and the gift of God.”
  1. “Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.”
  1. “You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.”
  1. “There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.”
  1. “Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God.”
