"My conscience is captive to the Word of God"

Thanks to Justin Taylor for the reminder that this past weekend was the 488th anniversary of Martin Luther's famous "here I stand" moment. This critical moment in the Reformation took place at the Diet of Worms. That sounds like a really disgusting way to lose wait, but a "diet" was a formal assembly pronounced 'dee-et'. Worms, pronouced 'Vorms' is a German town on the Rhine River. Here is the scene was the most recent Luther movie (which I highly recommend) that reenacts this piviotal moment. What conviction and courage!
