Does anyone know what the original date and source for these quotes by Martin Luther? I see them quoted often in books and on line, but haven’t reference seen the original source materials (i.e., one of his letters, books, speeches or sermons). Thanks in advance!
“This one will not hear of Baptism, and that one denies the sacrament, another puts a world between this and the last day: some teach that Christ is not God, some say this, some say that: there are as many sects and creeds as there are heads. No yokel is so rude but when he has dreams and fancies, he thinks himself inspired by the Holy Ghost and must be a prophet”(citation: De Wette III, 61. quoted in O’Hare, The Facts About Luther, 208.)
“Noblemen, townsmen, peasants, all classes understand the Evangelium better than I or St. Paul; they are now wise and think themselves more learned than all the ministers.” (**citation: **Walch XIV, 1360. quoted in O’Hare, Ibid, 209.)
