Quotes

Chancellor: Martin Luther, I ask you for the last time: Do you retract your writings and the errors the contain?
Martin Luther: Since your imperial majesty asks for a simple answer, I will give a simple answer. Unless I am convinced of my error by the evidence of the Scriptures or by plain reason, I cannot and I will not retract anything. I do not trust either popes or councils. It's not safe to act against one's conscience, and my conscience is captive to the word of God. Here I stand, so help me God.
