Martin Luther had a dream in which he stood on the day of judgment before God Himself, and Satan was there to accuse him. When Satan opened his books full of accusations, he pointed to transgression after transgression of which Luther was guilty. As the proceedings went on, Luther's heart sunk in despair. Then he remembered the cross of Christ, and turning upon Satan, he said, "There is one entry which you have not made, Satan." The Devil retorted, "What is that?" And Luther answered, "It is this: the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanseth us from all sins."
