Happy Reformation Day!

"Unless I am convinced by proofs from Scriptures or by plain and clear reasons and arguments, I can and will not retract, for it is neither safe nor wise to do anything against conscience. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen."
Martin Luther

I'm thankful to God for the courage of Martin Luther to fight established dogmas with a reasonable and common sense interpretation of Scriptures. The world could use more theologians like Luther who can move beyond prolegomena to teach the meaning of scripture and its glorious implications for Christ's church. Post Tenebras Lux!

I'm glad to see some one else is celebrating the great and grand reformation! We are watching the movie "Luther" tonight in youth group to celebrate such a momentous occasion.

May we revel in the grace revealed to such wicked mankind.

Or, as Luther would say. . .

Simul Iustus et Peccator

Oh, almost forgot. BOTTOMS UP! Let us covenant to pray together for our wives that they be as virtuous as the beloved Katrina von Bora -- raising kids, selling cattle, and yes, brewing the beloved beverage! Beer and the reformation, is there anything better.


(Just thought I'd make sure everyone knows that Matt did not solicit such an outburst.)

Our youth group watched "Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter", a self-proclaimed "horror/western."
