A bit about Martin Luther ...

Martin Luther (November 10, 1483 February 18, 1546) was a German theologian, an Augustinian monk, and an ecclesiastical reformer whose teachings inspired the Reformation and deeply influenced the doctrines and culture of the Lutheran and Protestant traditions. Luther's call to the Church to return to the teachings of the Bible led to the formation of new traditions within Christianity and to the Counter-Reformation, the Catholic reaction to these movements. His contributions to Western civilization went beyond the life of the Christian Church. His translations of the Bible helped to develop a standard version of the German language and added several principles to the art of translation. His hymns inspired the development of congregational singing in Christianity. His marriage on June 13, 1525, to Katharina von Bora began a movement of clerical marriage within many Christian traditions.

this is inaccurate. The #TORAH is written in #Yiddish ...I am told that the only way to read one is to be taught how to teach one. From those of us who desperately wanted to be in discipleship programs but do not favor the dogmatic principle of Christianity it should make sense that although there is more to this book we only see what they want us to. Any Rabbi will tell {you} that the Torah is the first 5 books of the Holy Bible in the Old Testament. What it won't say is that #Lucifer is named "The Bearer Of Light (not "the morning star") after God states (possibly to his/herself "Not all angels are trustworthy...let those who are most #loyal shine the brightest' and Lucifer far out-shinned everyone. At this point God gives dominion of the planet earth to Lucifer dubbing him {or her; whatever} "The Bearer Of Light." Lucifer becomes sullen wondering, "If God is so pleased with me...why does he not spend any time with me{?}" At this point original sin is 'born' on earth and #sin is the daughter of the Devil and the have children together and the Devil has children with those children as well. In Judaism Lucifer is known as "An Agent Of God" also God's Ape (sometimes wearing the faces in mock of the trinity or having Rooster feet or cloven feet also known to have faces on his/her torso or where the groin is. "Speak of the #Devil and he will hear of it!"
