In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther comforts those tormented by doubt and uncertainty:
“114. ‘My Dear Brother, do not be surprised that the devil tortures you so, Christ said, ‘If you were of the world, then the world would not hate you. But because you are not of the world, etc. [John 15:19].’ You may take your doubt and torment as a sign that you are a child of God. That is why Satan torments you, throws you into doubt, and makes you his son.” (p. 309).
