A unjust law, is no law at all.

-Martin Luther
Martin Luther

God doesn't slack his promises because of our sins or hasten them because of our righteousness. He pays no attention to either.

Martin Luther
Yes, I see the Church as the body of Christ. But, oh! How we have blemished and scarred that body through social neglect and through fear of being nonconformists.
Martin Luther

God has surely promised His grace to the humbled: that is, to those who mourn over and despair of themselves. But a man cannot be thoroughly humbled till he realizes that his salvation is utterly beyond his own powers, counsels, efforts, will and works, and depends absolutely on the will, counsel, pleasure and work of Another -- God alone.

Martin Luther
In a word, the Holy Scripture is the highest and best of books, abounding in comfort under all afflictions and trials. It teaches us to see, to feel, to grasp, and to comprehend faith, hope, and charity, far otherwise than mere human reason can; and while evil oppresses us, it teaches how these virtues throw light upon the darkness, and how, after this poor, miserable existence of ours on earth, there is another and an eternal life.
Martin Luther

A man would have to be an idiot to write a book of laws for an apple tree telling it to bear apples and not thorns, seeing that the apple-tree will do it naturally and far better than any laws or teaching can prescribe.

Martin Luther
The Devil has a great advantage against us inasmuch as he has a strong bastion and bulwark against us in our own flesh and blood.
Martin Luther

Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise.

Martin Luther
Is it not wonderful news to believe that salvation lies outside ourselves?
Martin Luther

He who believes in God is not careful for the morrow, but labors joyfully and with a great heart. "For He giveth His beloved, as in sleep." They must work and watch, yet never be careful or anxious, but commit all to Him, and live in serene tranquility; with a quiet heart, as one who sleeps safely and quietly.

Martin Luther
Mankind has a free will; but it is free to milk cows and to build houses, nothing more.
