21stCR Quotable Quotes

Reformation

 

Martin Luther

Since your majesty and your lordships desire a simple reply, I will answer without horns or teeth. Unless I am convinced by Scripture and by plain reason (I do not believe in the authority of either popes or councils by themselves, for it is plain that they have often erred and contradicted each other) in those Scriptures that I have presented, for my conscience is captive to the Word of God, I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen.

 

Martin Luther, Reply to the Diet of Worms, April 18, 1521

 
   
Jim Cymbala

When we stand before God, we will not be asked, "Were you a good evangelical?" or "Were you a good charismatic?" What will really matter is whether we honestly let God's Word shape our spiritual thinking.

 

Jim Cymbala

 
   
Martin Luther

A simple man with scripture has more authority than the Pope or a council.

 

Martin Luther

 
   
John Milton

God is decreeing to begin some new and great period in His Church, even to the reforming of the Reformation itself.

 

John Milton

 
   
John Kenneth Galbraith

Mark Twain

 
   
 

All that is deformed ought to be reformed. The Word of God alone teaches us what ought to be so, and all reform effected otherwise is vain.

 

Francis Lambert

 
   

Martin Luther

You are not only responsible for what you say but also for what you do not say.

 

Martin Luther

 
   
Martin Luther

Peace if possible, truth at all costs.

 

Martin Luther

 
   
Martin Luther King, Jr

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

 

Martin Luther King, Jr.

 
   
Ralph Waldo Emerson

What is a man born for but to be a reformer, a remaker of what has been made, a denouncer of lies, a restorer of truth and good?

 

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 
   
Martin Luther

When the word of God comes to the [post biblical church] Fathers, me thinks it is as if milk were filtered through a coal sack, where the milk must become black and spoiled.

 

Martin Luther Adolph Harnack,History of Dogma,Vol.2, p.7)

J. Dan Gill

 

How many Doctors of Divinity would have to teach an untruth in order to make it true?

Truth has a way of coming back no matter how much people may suppress it.

It is absolutely unacceptable that truth would not triumph.

 

There have been some really bad people in the world, and some of them are revered as Christians.
