Luther Quote of the Day

For when the serpent, the devil, wanted to effect Adam’s downfall, he set him in particular against the Son, saying: “You will be like God.” That was an offense against the Son of God. Both the devil and Adam wished to dispossess the Son of His honor; for only the Son is like God, or only He is “the image of the invisible God,” as we read in Col. 1:15, and the image of His divine essence, who “bears the very stamp of God’s nature,” as Heb. 1:3 tells us.
