Luther and Dylan

In a recent <thinknet> post, Roy Clouser wrote, quoting Luther:
Faith and trust of the heart make both God or an idol. If your faith is right you have the true God, if not you have an idol. But whatever your heart clings and entrusts itself to is, I say, really your God. (Commentary on the 1st commandment)
And in another place, in more typically Luther-fashion he put it: Man is like a jackass; somebody always rides his back and it's either God or the Devil.
This reminds me of St Bob:
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.
