Luther quotes

“But there are good grounds for my view, and this above all – no violence is to be done to the words of God, whether by man or angel. They are to be retained in their simplest meaning as far as possible. Unless the context manifestly compels it, they are not to be understood apart from their grammatical and proper sense, lest we give our adversaries occasion to make a mockery of all the Scriptures.” Martin Luther, Babylonian Captivity, LW, AE, 40:30
