On this day in 1517, Martin Luther wrote what is known known as "The 95 Theses." Although he wasn't intending to, he started the Protestant Reformation.
I don't celebrate Halloween, but I do celebrate Reformation Day (which just so happens to also be on October 31st).
My favorite Luther quote is from when Luther stood before the Diet of Worms:
"Unless I am convinced by the testimony of the Scriptures or by clear reason (for I do not trust either in the pope or in councils alone, since it is well known that they have often erred and contradicted themselves), I am bound by the Scriptures I have quoted and my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and will not recant anything, since it is neither safe nor right to go against conscience. Here I stand, I can do no other. May God help me. Amen."
And another favorite:
“So when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: "I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is there I shall be also!”
Happy Reformation Day!!!
