In honor of Reformation day, we present Luther’s defense at the Diet of Worms.
“O Lord, I am Thine, and the cause is Thine, give me the courage to stand.”
“Unless I am convinced by sacred Scripture or by evident reason, I cannot recant, for my conscience is held captive by the Word of God, and to act against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.”
-Martin Luther, 1521
