Luther Quotes

Luther Quote Source
God’s Law does not concern just outward existence and mere appearance, but instead it penetrates to the heart and demands perfect obedience. That is why this Law is not aimed at ephemeral, external matters and superficial behaviour, but it is aimed at the core of the human heart. However, the World neither understands nor cares about all this; for the World can only recognise public, external sins. Schriften, 21. Band, S. 358
