Martin Luther Quotes (183 quotes)
“I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.”
As stated in "Selections from the Table Talk: Introduction by Professor Henry Morley" (MobileReference, 2010), this quote may be apocryphal, as only the last four words appear in contemporaneous accounts.
“If he have faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself. He breaks out. He confesses and teaches this gospel to the people at the risk of life itself.”
