Here We Stand

“Since then your serene majesty and your lordships seek a simple answer, I will give it in this manner, neither horned nor toothed:
Unless I am convinced by the testimony of the Scriptures or by clear reason, for I do not trust either in the Pope or in Councils alone, since it is well known that they have often erred and contradicted themselves, I am bound by the Scriptures I have quoted, and my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not retract anything, since it is neither safe nor right to go against conscience.

I cannot do otherwise, here I stand, may God help me. Amen.”

– Luther, appearing before the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V, and his nobles, at Vorms in Germany, April 18th, 1521.
