    David, saith he [Martin Luther], made psalms, and sung them; we sing psalms as well as we can to the honour of our God, to spite and deride the devil and his spouse.

    The Works of George Swinnock, 2: 107.

    I thought when I saw the title of the thread, That sounds very [Martin] Lutheran!

    He didn't miss a chance to dishonor the Devil!
