Excerpt from Luther's Primary Works: Together With His Shorter and Larger Catechisms, Translated Into English

First, the preacher must above all things beware of and avoid the use Of various and different texts and forms Of the Commandments, Lord's Prayer, Belief, Sacrament, etc. He must take One form and keep to it, and constantly teach the same, year after year. For the young and Simple folk must be taught one definite text and version, else they will easily become confused, if today we teach thus and next year thus, as though we wanted to improve it, and so all our labour and toil is lost.

This was clearly seen by the worthy fathers, who used the Lord's Prayer, the Belief, the Ten Commandments, all in one form. Therefore we must always teach the young and simple folk in such a manner that we do not altar one syllable, or preach to-morrow differently from to ay.

Therefore choose whatever form thou wilt, and ever keep to it. But if thou preachest to scholars or wise men, thou mayest show thy skill, and vary these articles, and twist them as subtly as thou canst. But with the young keep always to one form, and teach them first Of all these articles, namely, the Ten Commandments, the Belief, the Lord's Prayer, etc., according to the text, word for word, so that they may repeat them and learn them by heart.
