Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The devil thus constantly tries to mimic God.  He cannot bear to hear God speak.  If he cannot prevent it, or forcefully obstruct God's Word, he counters with a beautiful presentation, using God's very words but twisting them to peddle his lies and poison. -- Blessed Martin Luther, Homily for the Fifth Sunday after Epiphany 1528 (House Postilla)
