Thus every matter, if it is to be done well, calls for the attention of the whole person.

Martin Luther

The whole Turkish empire is nothing else but a crust cast by Heaven's great Housekeeper to His dogs.

Martin Luther
The God whom we worship is not a weak and incompetent God. He is able to beat back gigantic waves of opposition and to bring low prodigious mountains of evil. The ringing testimony of the Christian faith is that God is able.
Martin Luther

It is false that the will, left to itself, can do good as well as evil, for it is not free, but in bondage...On the side of man there is nothing that goes before grace, unless it be impotency and even rebellion.

Martin Luther
Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church; it is a goodly Christian weapon.
Martin Luther

God's mark is on everything that obeys Him.

Martin Luther
We do not become righteous by doing righteous deed but, having been made righteous, we do righteous deeds.
Martin Luther

Sheep, cattle, men-servants were all possessions to be sold as it pleased their masters. It were a good thing were it still so. For else no man may compel nor tame the servile folk.

Martin Luther
If men only believe enough in Christ they can commit adultery and murder a thousand times a day without periling their salvation.
Martin Luther

Idiots, the lame, the blind, the dumb, are men in whom the devils have established themselves: and all the physicians who heal these infirmities, as though they proceeded from natural causes, are ignorant blockheads.

Martin Luther
We believe that the very beginning and end of salvation, and the sum of Christianity, consists of faith in Christ, who by His blood alone, and not by any works of ours, has put away sin, and destroyed the power of death.
