Free Will Condemned!
by Martin Luther

    Since Scripture everywhere proclaims Christ categorically and antithetically, as I said, and thereby subjects all that is without the Spirit of Christ to Satan, ungodliness, error, darkness, sin, death and the wrath of God, every statement concerning Christ is a direct testimony against 'free-will'.  And such statements are innumerable; indeed, they constitute the whole of Scripture. If, therefore, we conduct our argument with Scripture as judge, the victory in every respect belongs to me; for there is not one jot or tittle of Scripture left that does not condemn the doctrine of 'free-will'!
