It is said that Martin Luther came to his epiphany about Justification by Faith Alone while “on the toilet.” Though there is some debate about whether this was an idiomatic “in the dumps” type statement, most believe that he was actually using the restroom. This would not be surprising as it is well known that Martin Luther suffered from constipation.
Though this is an old story, I found it quite interesting. I need a picture of his toilet to put up in the men’s bathroom at the Credo House. Once I find one, I am going to supply the caption: “Take heart: Often, the greatest reformations happen on the toilet.”
