Luther quotes

“... one should answer that it is not enough to say such a statement may convey their understanding of it. They must show that it demands and compels such an interpretation. In matters like this, where conscience is involved, one must proceed with certainty, and not simply take a position and say: 'it might be interpreted this way.' 'Might' and 'must' are not the same. You have to prove that it must be interpreted in this way and no other. So long as you are unable to prove a 'must' your statement and interpretation are not binding.” Martin Luther, The Adoration of the Sacrament,LW, AE, 36:284
