Martin Luther had a dream where he was being attacked by the devil. The devil unrolled a long scroll containing a list of Luther’s sins, and held it before him. On reaching the end of the scroll Luther asked the devil, “Is that all?” The devil said, “No,” and a second scroll was placed in front of him. When he got to the end of the scroll, Luther said, “Is that all?” The devil said, “No, and a third scroll was placed in front of his face. When the devil read off the last sin, Luther said, “Is that all?” The devil said, “Yes, that’s all.” Luther said, “You forgot something,” The devil said “What?” Luther said, “You forgot to write over the top of each scroll that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin, and that Martin Luther is forgiven”
