‘A Mighty Fortress Is Our God’

Martin Luther’s hymn, A Mighty Fortress is Our God, contains lyrics we would all do well to heed. We need to stop giving Satan more than his due, and carrying on like we think the devil is the god of this world and none can stand against him. God has already numbered Satan’s days, and stoked up the fire good and hot for him.

If you’re Catholic, you can still join in: because in 2009 Pope Benedict said “Luther was right” in translating St. Paul’s teaching to read that we are saved by faith alone, and not by any works of ours. Go ahead, you could look it up.
