Martin Luther’s View on the Authority of Scripture

Martin Luther, the father of the Protestant Reformation, spoke…in his defense of himself at Worms in his great “Here I Stand” speech:

“Unless I am convinced by the testimony of the Holy Scriptures or by evident reason-for I can believe neither pope nor councils alone, as it is clear that they have erred repeatedly and contradicted themselves-I consider myself convicted by the testimony of Holy Scripture.”
