Luther quotes

This is what we have often said; at first the gospel terrifies and is contrary to the flesh, the word says that all our efforts are nil, our holiness and goodness count for nothing, everything that is in us is condemned, we are children of wrath and indignation. And this is hard on the flesh, an intolerable burden; this is why he calls it a burden or yoke.” Martin Luther, Sermon on St. Matthias' day, 1525, LW, AE, 51:130
