As a Lutheran pastor and theologian, especially since I began writing Ask the Pastor, I continually receive questions about my church: Who are we, where do we come from, what do we believe? Since we Lutherans have a very special remembrance this Sunday, I thought this a good time to share a bit of our history and teaching. Diet of AugsburgIn 1530, our Lutheran forefathers made public proclamation of a new summary of the ancient Scripture truth: Mankind is justified by God’s grace through faith in Christ Jesus. They set forth this notion in a religious document affirmed by secular rulers.

It has all the stuff of a good novel: parental conflict, spiritual agony, life-changing moments, near-misses, princes, popes, emperors, castles, kidnapping, mobs, revolution, massacres, politics, courage, controversy, disguises, daring escapes, humor and romance. And not only is it a good story, it marks a major turning point in western history and in Christianity.       Luther at the Diet of Worms.

On This Day Dec 10, 1520, Martin Luther publicly burned the papal edict. The papacy demanded that he recant or face excommunication. Luther refused and was formally expelled from the church in January 1521. And Protestants could be burned at the stake as heretics too. But the German princes did not care about religion. They were just tired of paying tribute (taxes) to the Holy Roman Emperor. Religion was a convenient way to get their populations to support their break with the Church. Wars of Religion followed for about 200 years. ~M~

No Halloween at the Lovell house. But we are celebrating Reformation Day! 495 years ago Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses to the Wittenburg door sparking the Protestant Reformation. Four years later, in 1521, Luther would give his famous defense of his stand against the Catholic church before the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V, at the Diet of Worms. "Unless I am convinced by proofs from Scriptures or by plain and clear reasons and arguments, I can and will not retract, for it is neither safe nor wise to do anything against conscience. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen."
