Quotes by Martin Luther

“The authority of Scripture is greater than the comprehension of the whole of man's reason.”

“I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount.”


  1. We have this one on our kitchen wall. I teach in the public schools and they are in many ways "great gates".

  2. Ellery:

    Amen to that! We cannot commit our children to the Philistine schools. Praise the Lord for those like you who have been called to minister there, but let's keep our kids out of those places.


I welcome your comments. However, since this is a blog rather than an open forum, I will determine what is and what is not posted. All comments, especially anonymous comments, will be scrutinized carefully. I will not post comments that contain profanity or are negative toward the Scriptures, God, Christianity in general, Christian schools, or the United States of America. I also will not post comments that are nothing more than generally uninformed or absurd opinions. In addition, I will not post comments that are totally irrelevant to the subject being discussed. Finally, I will not post comments that are commercial advertisements or advertisements for religious organizations which are in conflict with my biblical convictions.
