Thoughts & Reflections

Since October is Reformation month within the Protestant Church and since our featured Book of the Month is a biography of Martin Luther, we thought you might enjoy a few of the famous reformer's more pithy quotations. Luther is an eminently quotable character. Here are only a handful which we think you'll find good fodder for reflection...

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.

Where God builds a church, the devil builds a chapel.

Reason is the enemy of faith.

Peace if possible, truth at all costs.

Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.

Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.

There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.

The fewer the words, the better the prayer.

An earthly kingdom cannot exist without any quality of persons, some must be free, some serves, some rulers, some subjects.
