That stands true for every Christian who has ever breathed oxygen.So my purpose in highlighting some of “the shocking beliefs” of those upon whose shoulders we all stand is not to burn these folks in effigy. Such discounting and damning can always be avoided and it serves no one on the Kingdom side of the aisle.When diversity within orthodoxy is encountered, grace should be extended. But he wore himself out with prayer, fasting, and excessive confessions, trying to earn God’s favor.
Later, he had a revelation of God’s grace and justification by faith while reading the book of Romans.(This revelation is alleged to have come to him while he was sitting on the toilet. Therefore, who knows.)Luther’s reformation began when he opposed John Tetzel who was selling indulgences to raise money to finance the building of Saint Peter’s Cathedral. So in reaction, he wrote his famous 95 theses.It’s commonly held that Luther posted his 95 thesis on the door of the castle church in Wittenberg, inviting scholars to debate the issue. Nevertheless, with the advent of the printing press, Luther’s 95 theses were printed and distributed widely.Luther was rebuked by the leadership of the Catholic Church and given space to recant and repent. Luther refused, and as a result, he was condemned by the Church, branded a heretic, excommunicated, banished, and even condemned by the Emperor.
Luther survived, however, because he was kidnapped and protected by Fredrick III, Elector of Saxony (“Frederick the Wise”).Luther translated the New Testament into German so that the common people could understand it.
Yet he hoped that “all my books would disappear and the Holy Scriptures alone would be read.”After 1521, Luther spent the rest of his life as an outlaw.
One of the rumors was that he was the child of a bathhouse liaison between his mother and the devil.Yet despite the persecution, between 1520 and 1521, Luther rose to rock star status in Germany.
Many Germans pinned up the posters in public places.At the same time, cartoons were made of him, shaming and condemning him.
I must be invincible, because they cannot overcome me when I only have one.”In 1525, Luther married a former nun who was 16 years his junior, Katharina von Bora. He restored the great doctrine of justification by faith, freeing God’s people from legalism and the need to go through human mediators to get to God. He also had a strong hand in restoring music and singing to the congregation of all believers.Sadly, however, Luther often clashed with his fellow Protestant reformers. Luther tossed a guilder at Karlstadt, a sign of an open feud.Thus began a blood-letting doctrinal war between the two men. Luther once said of Zwingli, “I have bitten into many a mutt, believing it to be good, only to find it wormy. So remember this when you read what follows. To bring this point home, imagine this scenario.

Suppose that Christians 200 years from now discover that some of the items we use on a daily basis were destroying the planet. If the great theologians who shaped evangelical Christianity could be so right on some things, and so off on others, then certainly we need to be more tolerant, civil, and gracious with our fellow brethren today when we disagree. In other words, it’s hypocritical for a fan of Calvin to condemn someone over a non-essential doctrinal difference when you understand the crazy stuff that Calvin believed.
Get my point?So this series, rightly understood, should cause us to tread softly with our fellow brethren and sistren in Christ. Luther despised Jewish people, believing that they deserved persecution.In 1523 earlier Luther accused Catholics of being unfair to the Jews and treating them like dogs, thus making it difficult for Jews to convert to Christ. But 15 years later, rumors of the Jewish effort to convert Christians greatly disturbed him, and he changed his tune entirely on the Jewish people.He concluded that converting a Jew was a hopeless pursuit.
In his On the Jews and their Lies, Luther stated,“Let their houses also be shattered and destroyed . Let them be forbidden to practice usury, and let all their money, and all their treasures of silver and gold be taken from them and put away in safety. He was frustrated that that they had rejected Jesus and he couldn’t convince them otherwise. On this score, he wrote,“Just as I may eat, drink, sleep, walk, ride with, buy from, speak to, and deal with a heathen, Jew, Turk, or heretic, so I may also marry and continue in wedlock with him. In Luther’s day, this practice was known as the Sitzrecht—“the sitter’s right.” [5]Luther announced that “the Sitzrecht was from the pit of hell” and was a “perversion of public order . He was discouraged that despite his continuous preaching, his congregation remained godless. Luther made an attempt to remove the books of Hebrews, James, Jude and Revelation from the biblical canon.He did so because he believed these books went against certain Protestant doctrines such as sola gratia and sola fide.
In his preface to the New Testament, Luther ascribed to several books of the New Testament different degrees of doctrinal value saying,“St. Peter’s Epistle-these are the books which show to thee Christ, and teach everything that is necessary and blessed for thee to know, even if you were never to see or hear any other book of doctrine. In it, he blamed the unrest on the rulers who persecuted the gospel and mistreated their subjects. In his treatise Against the Robbing and Murdering Hordes of Peasants, he urged the princes with these words,“Therefore let everyone who can, smite, slay and stab, secretly or openly, remembering that nothing can be more poisonous, hurtful or devilish than a rebel. Fisher wrote,“The manner in which he [Luther] dissociated his movement from the peasant rebellion .

In 1536, Melanchthon drafted a memorandum demanding death for all Anabaptists and Luther signed it. He dismissed the Jewish rabbi’s interpretation of Scripture as “Jewish piss and shi*.”He reprimanded his Catholic opponents saying “How often must I cry out to you coarse, stupid papists to quote Scripture some time?
He wrote, “We neither can nor ought to give the name priest to those who are in charge of the Word and sacrament among the people. The reason they have been called priests is either because of the custom of the heathen people or as a vestige of the Jewish nation. The result is greatly injurious to the church.” [32]However, not much changed between the Catholic priest and the Protestant pastor during the Reformation.
Emil Brunner writes about this saying, “Of all the great teachers of Christianity, Martin Luther perceived most clearly the difference between the Ecclesia of the New Testament and the institutional church, and reacted most sharply against the quid pro quo which would identify them. Therefore he refused to tolerate the mere word ‘church’: he called it an obscure ambiguous term.
He realized that the New Testament ecclesia is just not an ‘it,’ ‘a thing,’ an ‘institution,’ but rather a unity of persons, a people, a communion.
The linguistic usage of both the Reformation and the post-Reformation era had to come to terms with the so powerfully developed idea of the church, and consequently all the confusion dependent upon the use of this ‘obscure ambiguous’ word penetrated Reformation theology.

In addition, Hoover points out that “Martin Luther and his colleagues met at Speyer on the Rhein in 1529 . Nevertheless, if Luther is the source of this letter, as many believe, he wasn’t advocating that everyone go out and sin big league.
