Philipp Melanchthon

It is shameful for man to rest in ignorance of the structure of his own body, especially when the knowledge of it mainly conduces to his welfare, and directs his application of his own powers.More Philipp Melanchthon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Without the intervention of the civil authority what would our percepts become?- Platonic laws.More Philipp Melanchthon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But I hope that by the decision and authority of wise princes that sometime devout and learned men from the churches of other nations and of ours may be summoned together to deliberate about all the controversies and that there be handed down to posterity one harmonious, true, and clear form of doctrine, without any ambiguity. Meanwhile, as far as possible, let us encourage the union of our churches with measured advice.More Philipp Melanchthon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Faith is nothing else than trust in the divine mercy promised in Christ.More Philipp Melanchthon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The eyes are witnesses that the heavens revolve in the space of twenty- four hours. But certain men, either from the love of novelty, or to make a display of ingenuity, have concluded that the earth moves; and they maintain that neither the eighth sphere nor the sun revolves....Now, it is a want of honesty and decency to assert such notions publicly, and the example is pernicious. It is the part of a good mind to accept the truth as revealed by God and to acquiesce in it.More Philipp Melanchthon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
