Luther: The Movie

‘Unless I am convinced by scripture and plain reason, my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against conscience would be neither right nor safe. God help me. Here I stand, I can do no other.’  ~~Martin Luther, 1521

I suppose all of you have already seen the Luther movie.
Well if you are a little slow like we are and you have not seen it go out and rent it.

It is a very good movie, and the best thing is, I laughed, I cried and I learned something.
I did not know there was such a huge purge of the Church by violent means during Luther’ time.  He may have been responsible in some ways for this violence yet at the same time he opposed it.  As I watched I was struck with how the spiritual forces of evil must have been very active in the events that were described in the movie.  I can think of nothing else to cause such incredible violence.

You may also see a familiar face in the movie.  Does Alfred Molina ring a bell?  He was the bad guy in the last Spiderman movie.  I could not place him at first.  I needed the insight of my kids to figure that one out.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
