Another Fantastically Gross (but insightful) Luther Quote.

“I resist the devil, and often it is with a fart that I chase him away.  When he tempts me with silly sins I say, ‘Devil, yesterday I broke wind too.  Have you written that down on your list?’…  Thus, I remind myself of the forgiveness of sin and of Christ…”
-Luther on the Treatment of Melancholy, Despair, Etc.  November 30, 1531
