Quotables: Martin Luther

There is, however, very much to be said for my opinion; in
the first place this--that no violence ought to be done to the
words of God, neither by man, nor by angel, but that, as far as
possible, they ought to be kept to their simplest meaning, and
not to be taken, unless the circumstances manifestly compel us
to do so, out of their grammatical and proper signification,
that we may not give our adversaries any opportunity of evading
the teaching of the whole Scriptures.
The Babylonian Captivity of the Church

    - Martin Luther (1483-1546),
