I compare it with a lie, which like to a snowball, the longer it is rolled the greater it becomes.

-Martin Luther
Martin Luther

If Church history teaches us anything, it is that we cannot afford to be a vacillating Church. We minister to a people who are in great need of hearing truth, we dare not make any attempt to soft pedal that glorious truth.

Martin Luther
All our experience with history should teach us, when we look back, how badly human wisdom is betrayed when it relies on itself
Martin Luther

Human nature is like a drunk peasant. Lift him into the saddle on one side, over he topples on the other side.

Martin Luther
Original sin is in us like our beard. We are shaved today and look clean; tomorrow our beard has grown again, nor does it cease growing while we remain on earth. In like manner original sin cannot be extirpated from us; it springs up in us as long as we live.
Martin Luther

Isaiah calls the Church barren because her children are born without effort by the Word of faith through the Spirit of God. It is a matter of birth, not of exertion.

Martin Luther
The devil is God's ape!
Martin Luther

The first care of every Christian ought to be to lay aside all reliance on works, and strengthen his faith alone more and more, and by it grow in the knowledge, not of works, but of Christ Jesus, who has suffered and risen again for him.

Martin Luther
Prayer is climbing up into the heart of God.
Martin Luther

Many demons are in woods, in waters, in wildernesses, and in dark poolly places ready to hurt...people.

Martin Luther
Father and Mother are apostles, bishops and priests to their children, for it is they who make them acquainted with the gospel.
