Wednesday Wallpaper: My Conscience is Captive

Wednesday Wallpaper: My Conscience is Captive

Celebrate Reformation Day with this week’s wallpapers. In 1521, young Martin Luther was called before Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms to recant his religious convictions. However, Luther did no such thing. Here is a sample of his response:

Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason—I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other—my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen.

Martin Luther
