Anyway, I know Martin Luther wasn't perfect, but I believe he did get quite a few things right in terms of his theology and did, in fact, effect much needed change within the church.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther.
- Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
- Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.
- Faith is permitting ourselves to be seized by the things we do not see.
- Forgiveness is God's command.
- God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
- To go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can not do otherwise.
- I more fear what is within me than what comes from without.
- The man who has the will to undergo all labor may win to any good.
- You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.
