“I saw the chamber of Luther, with the bed in which he slept, his wash basin & his desk - a notable desk, too, for on that desk Luther translated the New Testament into German.
On one of the walls of the room there is a place bare of plaster. It is the spot where Luther hurled his inkstand at the devil, whose fearful apparition he had seen. This may be but legend.
But there is no doubting the fact that by his translation of the New Testament into the language of the people, Luther did hurl an inkstand of considerable weight at the devil & all his works.”

“Do you think the devil is impressed by anyone's Bible knowledge or degree-certificates? Not at all. Satan fears only holy, humble men and women who know God.” - Zac Poonen.
Js 4:7 (ISV): “Therefore, submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil and he will run away from you.”
