SOLA Part 1: Proper Protestant

“Unless I am convinced by the testimony of Holy Scriptures or by evident reason, for I cannot 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, which is my basis; My conscience is captive to the Word of God. Thus I cannot and I will not recant, because acting against one’s conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I cannot do otherwise. God help me. Amen.” ~ Martin Luther
