Even like as St. Paul was converted, just so are all others converted; for we all resist God, but the Holy Ghost draws the will of mankind, when he pleases, through preaching.

As for the demented, I hold it certain that all beings deprived of reason are thus afflicted only by the Devil.

Martin Luther
The world says of marriage: A short joy and a long displeasure. But he who understands it finds in it delight, love, and joy without ceasing.
Martin Luther

For all works and things, which are either commanded or forbidden by God and thus have been instituted by the supreme Majesty, are 'musts.' Nevertheless, no one should be dragged to them or away from them by the hair, for I can drive no man to heaven or beat him into it with a club.

Martin Luther
This is the most dangerous trial of all, when there is no trial and every thing goes well; for then a man is tempted to forget God, to become too bold and to misuse times of prosperity.
Martin Luther

A theologian should be thoroughly in possession of the basis and source of faith--that is to say, the Holy Scriptures. Armed with this knowledge it was that I confounded and silenced all my adversaries; for they seek not to fathom and understand the Scriptures; they run them over negligently and drowsily; they speak, they write, they teach, according to the suggestion of their heedless imaginations.

Martin Luther
Jews and papists are ungodly wretches; they are two stockings made of one piece of cloth.
Martin Luther

How rich a God our God is! He gives enough, but we don't notice it. He gave the whole world to Adam, but this was nothing in Adam's eyes; he was concerned about one tree and had to ask why God had forbidden him to eat it.

Martin Luther
Our God is the God from whom cometh salvation: God is the Lord by who escape death.
Martin Luther

A unjust law, is no law at all.

Martin Luther
I have such hatred of divorce that I prefer bigamy to divorce. Anyway, I think we should see other people.
