Jim West (Thankfully) Strikes Again!

Speaking of beer, oh, we weren’t? Then let’s start. Jim West has a great article posted at the Wittenberg Hall. Of interest is his quote of Martin Luther who stated, Do you suppose that abuses are eliminated by destroying the object which is abused? Men can go wrong with wine and women. Shall we then prohibit and abolish women? The sun, the moon, and the stars have been worshipped. Shall we then pluck them out of the sky? … See how much He has been able to accomplish through me, though I did no more than pray and preach. The Word did it all. Had I wished I might have started a conflagration at Worms. But while I sat still and drank beer with Philip and Amsdorf, God dealt the papacy a mighty blow.

Have a beer while you read the entire article here.
