6.THE DIET OF WORMS Martin Luther And The Rulers
April 18th, 1521: Martin Luther, standing in front of the rulers of Germany, is told to revoke his reformatory statements against the Roman-Catholic Church. He is on the brink of the stake. Luther`s answer: „Here I stand, I cannot do otherwise. God help me. Amen.“ From this hour onwards the religious landscape of Europe is changed.
Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. (KJV)
Matthew 10:17-19 – But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. (KJV)
