Martin Luther's dirty little book: On the Jews and their lies A precursor to Nazism by Jim Walker Originated: 07 Aug. 1996 Additions: 20 Nov. 2005 Introduction I wish to make clear that the purpose of these selections from Martin Luther aims at providing a historical and scholarly source for study of anti-Semitism, religious thought, and how it has influenced the German population and their outlook on Jews. There will always exist a potential for misuse of any information. However, it has come from observation that hiding such information from view can lead (and has led) to unconscious support of underground movements of anti-Semitism that use these texts for their various nefarious purposes. Bringing this information to light will allow critical analyses ...

Question: Please listen to the enclosed audio tape of several Bible Answer Man broadcasts and respond to Hank Hanegraaff’s statements that (1) your book, A Woman Rides the Beast , is pitifully unscholarly and revisionist history; (2) the Roman Catholic Church was the only Christian Church in existence prior to the Reformation and therefore if it went into apostasy Christ’ s promise failed that the gates of *** would not prevail against the church; and (3) it is ludicrous to identify the Roman Catholic Church as the *** in Revelation 17. Could you respond in your newsletter? Response: I don’t want to have a public quarrel with CRI. However, I have been asked so many times by people such as yourself to respond to such charges by CRI that I feel I must do so at last. I’m astonished that the book in question could be labeled “unscholarly.” Check its more than 800 footnotes for yourself (which I doubt the critics have done) and note that the sources quoted are Roman Catholic councils, catechisms .. ...
THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH “THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH” is the subject of DR. Martin Luther doctrinal point of view, which was the foundation of his reform movement. And it is the doctrine that has toppled the powerful papacy of the Roman Catholic Church in 1798. After the spiritual declension began to overcome the Seventh-Day Adventists after 1880, then the doctrine of faith again was offered us through the General Conference of SDA leadership session in 1888 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. The doctrine is more known today as the message of the “Justification by Faith” by Elders Waggoner and Jones. To this end Sister White said: “Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of justification by faith is the third’s angel message, and I have answered, ‘IT IS THE THIRD ANGEL’S MESSAGE IN VERITY.”— 1 Selected Messages, p. 372. “The time of test is just upon us, for the loud cry of the third angel has already begun in the revelation of the righteousness of Christ, the sin – ...
SAFETY 3:2 – “Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.” The Five Solas are five Latin phrases (or slogans) that emerged from the Protestant Reformation intended to summarize the Reformers' basic theological principles in contrast to certain teachings of the Roman Catholic Church of the day. "Sola" is Latin meaning "alone" or "only" and the corresponding phrases are: • Sola Fide, by faith alone. • Sola Scriptura, by Scripture alone. • Solus Christus, through Christ alone. • Sola Gratia, by grace alone. • Soli Deo Gloria, glory to God alone. These phrases may be found individually expressed in the various writings of the 16th century Reformers, either explicitly or implicitly, but they are not found presented as a list per se. It is most likely the list of Solas came about later. Unashamedly, I subscribe to those 5 things. These “five solas” were developed in response to specific perversions of the truth that were taught by the corrupt Roman Catholic Church. The R ...
What is the Lutheran Church, and what do Lutherans believe? The Lutheran Church is actually many different bodies, all of which base their teachings and practice to some degree on the work of Martin Luther. There is such a wide variance in their particular beliefs that it would be difficult to address them all, but this article will attempt to outline those most commonly held. Martin Luther was born and raised in Germany and studied philosophy and law as a young man, but soon became discouraged by those studies. He became an Augustinian Monk in 1505, but the isolated lifestyle only led him to further despair as he spent countless hours in meditation and contemplation. In 1507, he was ordained a Roman Catholic priest and later began teaching theology at the University of Wittenberg. During his years teaching theology, Luther grew increasingly frustrated at the excesses and abuses which he saw within the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church. On October 31, 1517, he posted his 95 Theses on the door of All ...
REASONS WHY THERE ARE SO MANY CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS. To answer this question, we must first differentiate between denominations within the body of Christ and non-Christian cults and false religions. Presbyterians and Lutherans are examples of Christian denominations. Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses are examples of cults (groups claiming to be Christian but denying one or more of the essentials of the Christian faith). Islam and Buddhism are entirely separate religions. The rise of denominations within the Christian faith can be traced back to the Protestant Reformation, the movement to “reform” the Roman Catholic Church during the 16th century, out of which four major divisions or traditions of Protestantism would emerge: Lutheran, Reformed, Anabaptist, and Anglican. From these four, other denominations grew over the centuries. The Lutheran denomination was named after Martin Luther and was based on his teachings. The Methodists got their name because their founder, John Wesley, was famous for com ...

Many Famous People knew Who is the Beast All these brilliant people knew that the Roman Catholic Papal Church is the little horn of Daniel 7, which is synonymous with the first beast of Revelation 13 that enforces 666 and the mark of the beast, and some of them died by the hand of the Roman Catholic Church. See also the identity of the antichrist. “John Wycliffe, William Tyndale (translated the Bible - Tyndale Bible), Martin Luther, John Calvin, Thomas Cranmer; in the seventeenth century, Bunyan, the translators of the KING JAMES BIBLE and the men who published the Westminster and Baptist confessions of Faith; Sir Isaac Newton, John Wesley, Whitfield, Jonathan Edwards; and more recently Spurgeon, Bishop J.C. Ryle and Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones; these men among countless others, all saw the office of the Papacy as the antichrist.” — All Roads Lead to Rome, by Michael de Semlyen. Dorchestor House Publications, p. 205. 1991.
"Is the pope, or the next pope, the antichrist?" Answer:There are many speculations about the identity of the Antichrist. One of the most frequent “victims” of the speculation is the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. In the days of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther and some of the other Reformers were convinced that the Pope of that time was the Antichrist. Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI were commonly identified as the Antichrist. The current Pope, Francis I, will likely be an equally popular target. Why is this? Is there anything in the Bible that would indicate that a Pope will be the Antichrist? The speculation about the Pope possibly being the Antichrist revolves primarily aroundRevelation 17:9 . ...clearly identifies the woman riding the beast as the city of Babylon. (The ancient city of Babylon was located near modern day Baghdad.) In addition, verse 10 plainly states that the seven hills symbolize seven kings, five of which “have fallen, one is and one is to come.” Clearly, th ...
"Here I am, I can do no other."- Martin Luther when he was standing up to the Roman Catholic Church for his belief in justification by faith in Jesus alone.
Most of modern Christianity assumes that what it believes and practises was what was taught by Christ and the apostles. Few people realise that the religion they practice is actually nothing like the faith that was taught and practiced by Jesus Christ and the apostles or the early church. Many Protestant churches deny the authority of the Roman Catholic Church or the Orthodox Church and yet are totally dependent upon the Councils of the church for the doctrines they hold. Most so-called Modern Fundamentalist Christians believe that they hold a body of doctrine that is derived from Scripture alone and that this doctrine called Sola Scriptura by the Reformation Protestants, such as Calvin and Martin Luther, is the basis of their belief. What they do not realise is that the Reformation did not go back to the Bible and Scripture alone. It failed in its objectives and did not go beyond Augustine and the Councils of the fourth century. So-called Modern Christian Fundamentalism is totally dependent upon the Coun ...
Martin Luther: His theology challenged the authority of the Pope (Leo X) of the Roman Catholic Church by teaching that the Bible is the only source of divinely revealed knowledge from God and opposed 'sacerdotalism' by considering all baptized Christians to be a holy priesthood. Do the bishops want our faith heritage drop and go back to the Roman church with the only recognized authority as that of the bishops? Reformed tradition and the Reformation are primarily a lay movement and not much of the clergy. People, please be advised.

today in history in 1521, Martin Luther is excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church. the irony!!!
From the pen of Martin Luther: - "We shouldn't fight against our troubles, but rather remind ourselves, "I will not die, but I will live" ( Psalm 118:17). Even when the opposite seems to be true, we should be able to say,"When I feel helpless, I can put my trust in God, who is able to make everything out of nothing. When I am totally devastated, no one can lift me up again the way He can." The more sever the suffering, the greater the wonderful benefits to God's holy people. Being tested through suffering is a sure sign of God's kindness and mercy to His faithful people. When they faithfully cling to God's promises, unbelievable blessings result. James says,"Blessed are those who endure when they are tested. When they pass the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him" (James 1:12). - In 1517, Martin Luther wrote the famous ninety-five theses challenging the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, and nailed them to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenburg.

FACULTY AND STAFF WHO HAVE BEEN PRAYING We know there are many of you who have been waiting and praying for change. You thought you could work from within, much as Martin Luther thought he could work from within the Roman Catholic Church. You thought you could make relationships that would blossom into groups of like-minded individuals who would bring about change. This change is never going to happen. Sure, there will be changes that don't matter. Remember the joy when you ladies were no longer forced to wear hose? Remember the joy of wearing pants? Do you not see how puerile and facile that is? How infantilizing? You cheer like a child being given a sweetie. You hoped that Stephen would be the savior. He wasn't. He never could have been. He wasn't qualified by temperament, by education, by experience, or by intellect. He was and is only a puppet. You hoped that the search for a new President would bring in a savior. It won't.

Today in History: 1521 - The Roman Catholic Church declares Martin Luther to be an outlaw, as he rode off with Jesse James.
“The Christian Faith does not need to be reformed; it simply needs to be preserved. Luther’s error was that in attempting to reform the perversions of the Roman Catholic Church he ended up manufacturing new heresies altogether. Prior to, during, and after the Protestant Reformation, the Orthodox Christian Church remained unbroken and uncorrupted in its doctrine and Faith. Luther had the opportunity to rebuke the Roman errors by appealing to the authority of apostolic Orthodox Teaching and Tradition. But instead, Martin Luther made his own finite reasoning and his own private interpretation of scripture the authoritative standard for Christian truth. And the result of his arrogance is the perpetual proliferation of countless Protestant denominations, sects, heresies, and cults.” Selam, +GMK+

FYI, a bit of history to test your knowledge of Christianity. Born in Germany in 1483, Martin Luther became one of the most influential figures in Christian history when he began the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. He called into question some of the basic tenets of Roman Catholicism, and his followers soon split from the Roman Catholic Church to begin the Protestant tradition.
I can see a split in the Roman Catholic Church comming in the near future, kind of like when Martin Luther broke away Lutherens

 "The Protestant Reformation was a major 16th century European movement aimed initially at reforming the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. Its religious aspects were supplemented by ambitious political rulers who wanted to extend their power and control at the expense of the Church. The Reformation ended the unity imposed by medieval Christianity and, in the eyes of many historians, signaled the beginning of the modern era. A weakening of the old order was already under way in Northern Europe, as evidenced by the emergence of thriving new cities and a determined middle class   "In 1517, in one of the signal events of western history, Martin Luther, a German Augustinian monk, posted 95 theses on a church door in the university town of Wittenberg. That act was common academic practice of the day and served as an invitation to debate. Luther's propositions challenged some portions of Roman Catholic doctrine and a number of specific practices.   "The movement quickly gained adherents in t ...
Indulgences. Theological Terms. A practice of the medieval Roman Catholic Church that suggested that financial contributions to the church could ensure that a person who had died could be released from purgatory ( the place of torment) Into heavenly bliss. Indulgences, among other practices, prompted Martin Luther to question the scriptural basis for many teachings of the medieval Roman Catholic Church. This in turn led to the Protestant Reformation and luther's emphasis on a person being declared righteous on the basis of faith in Christ alone without reference to meritorious human works of any kind. This practice is no longer present in its past form. There were consequences for the opposition to the Papacy. The student need to identify those consequences and the impact on Christian thought.
OUR GOD IS A MIGHTY FORTRESS! 2nd Chapter of Acts, Matthew Ward sings this rendition of Martin Luther's Reformation Hymn, "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" October 31, 1517 is the day when Martin Luther posted his 95 Thesis on the Castle Church door of Wittenberg, Germany. Here is the history from wikipedia: In 1516–17, Johann Tetzel, a Dominican friar and papal commissioner for indulgences, was sent to Germany by the Roman Catholic Church to raise money to rebuild St Peter's Basilica in Rome.[1] On 31 October 1517, Martin Luther wrote to Albrecht, Archbishop of Mainz and Magdeburg, protesting against the sale of indulgences. He enclosed in his letter a copy of his "Disputation of Martin Luther on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences," which came to be known as The 95 Theses.[2] Hans Hillerbrand writes that Luther had no intention of confronting the church, but saw his disputation as a scholarly objection to church practices, and the tone of the writing is accordingly "searching, rather than doctrinaire . ...
Worship this Weekend: Rejoice, Renew, Rededicate If you’re a big enough church geek, you might catch yourself singing a classic Lennon-McCartney tune this way: “You say you want a Reformation, well, you know…we all want to change the world…”. 496 years after Martin Luther damaged the doors at Castle Church in Wittenberg while posting his 97 Theses, we again celebrate ‘Reformation Sunday’. We know that Luther, himself a Catholic Priest, considered his work a scholarly objection to the practices of the Medieval Catholic Church – not an attempt to split the church. Obviously it didn’t work out that way. So in the United Church of Christ, created from a merger of four disparate denominations, we pray that the merging continues until the day that the church is again united in Christ. “That they may all be one,” as Jesus put it in John’s gospel. Until that day, we celebrate the mantra of the Reformation: “We are Reformed and always Reforming,” as God’s still-speaking voice moves .. ...
Sola Scriptura SOLI DEO GLORIA SOLO CHRISTO SOLA GRATIA SOLA FIDA The Five Solas of the Reformation. Five hundred years ago, a monk in Germany made a list of 95 issues that he wanted the theologians of the Roman Catholic Church to discuss. Little did know that his list, called the Ninety-Five Theses, would spark the Reformation, a movement that would split the church and form a new kind of Christianity: Protestantism. The monk was Martin Luther, and his debate caused the boiling pot of discontent to erupt all over Europe. In Luther's wake, the new shape of western faith was revealed, leading even later to a new kind of nation. Aww yes, not the beginning, but a good place to start to begin to understand the mess of confusion the modern church is in.
Christianity – Protestantism Origins and History During the Middle Ages, the Roman Catholic Church held a virtual monopoly of faith in Western Europe, but between the 14th and 17th Centuries there was a series of Northern European reforms, or protest movements, which led to the separation from Rome of what would become known as Protestant churches. Preaching against the perceived excesses of the medieval church, including papal indulgences, reformers wished to reclaim the spiritual authority of the Christian religion, arguing that the true church was not defined in terms of a continuous tradition of ministry (the Catholic view), but in terms of continuity with the teaching of the Apostles. They defined a true church as one where the Word of God ruled, and where the only sacraments administered would be those which Christ administered – baptism and eucharist. The founder of the German Reformation was Martin Luther (1483-1546), an Augustinian monk who nailed 95 propositions to the church door in Wittenb ...
World Changers Expelled!!! Nicholas Copernicus is known today as the father of modern astronomy. Galileo is known as the father of modern science, and the founder of the scientific method amongst many other contributions to our world. In fact, the Roman Catholic Church warned Galileo to stop his teachings. When he refused, Galileo was brought before a court, found guilty of speaking against the church's beliefs, and sentenced to house arrest for the rest of his life in 1633! Amongst these, some more common household names who were expelled from church for speaking and teaching contrary to the church's formal structure and beliefs are John Calvin, Martin Luther, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., and more recently Bishop Carlton Pearson to name a few. And let's not forget about Jesus; One who was criticized by the sadduccees and pharasees of His day!!! Throughout the history of religious institutions and human kind, people who have made enormous world changing contributions to the continued develop . ...
Turkey presents Prophet's sayings for the 21st century Reuters | May 28, 2013, 09.47 AM IST The hadiths record Muhammad's words and acts during his life. Preachers and jurists use them to understand the Koran and support Muslim teachings and fatwas (religious edicts) on all aspects of life, from prayer to education for women. ANKARA: Scholars around the Muslim world were alarmed five years ago by news reports that Turkey planned a new, possibly heretical compilation of the Prophet Muhammad's sayings that might scrap those it thought were out of date. Turkish religious leaders and theologians received anxious calls asking about Western media reports they would edit a "radical" new set of hadiths, scriptures that are second only to the Koran in Islam. "Will you write a new Koran next?" one irate Arab scholar asked a baffled Turkish academic. The new work, finally ready after six years in the making, is nothing like the 95 Theses in which Martin Luther condemned practices in the Roman Catholic Church and lau ...
Martin Luther declared his position: Justification is by faith alone, our works add nothing to our justification whatsoever, and we have no merit to offer God that in any way enhances our justification. This created the worst schism in the history of Christendom. In refusing to accept Luther’s view, the Roman Catholic Church excommunicated him, then responded to the outbreak of the Protestant movement with a major church council, the Council of Trent, which was part of the so-called Counter-Reformation and took place in the middle of the sixteenth century. The sixth session of Trent, at which the canons and decrees on justification and faith were spelled out, specifically appealed to James 2:24 to rebuke the Protestants who said that they were justified by faith alone: “You see that a person is justified by what he does and not by faith alone.” How could James say it any more clearly? It would seem that that text would blow Luther out of the water forever. Of course, Martin Luther was very much awar ...
How Old Is Your Church? The Catholic Church - 33 A.D. in Jerusalem. Founded by God in the person of Jesus Christ. Our Lord named Simon (Peter) the first leader of His Church (the first Vicar of Christ on earth), when He said to him "Thou art Peter (Rock), and upon this rock I will build my Church. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 16:19) Instituted nearly 2,000 years ago by the Son of God, it is still the same Roman Catholic Church (catholic from katholikos, Greek for "universal", meant to be the Church for all peoples.) The Orthodox Church - 1054 A.D. in Constantinople. Founded by schismatic Catholic Bishops who separated from the Roman Catholic Church. The Lutheran Church - 1517 A.D. in Germany. Founded by a man, Martin Luther, an ex- monk of the Roman Catholic Church, who violated his sacred vows of both obedience and celibacy. Luther created a brand-new protestant bible by throwing out 7 books of the Bible which he personally didn't agree with, and added the word "a ...

Happy Birthday Nicolaus Copernicus - Copernicus's theories incensed the Roman Catholic Church; his model was considered heretical because it was contrary to the Church’s teachings. When De revolutionibus orbium coelestium was published in 1543, just before Copernicus's death, religious leader Martin Luther voiced his opposition to the heliocentric solar system model. His underling, Lutheran minister Andreas Osiander, quickly followed suit, saying of Copernicus, "This fool wants to turn the whole art of astronomy upside down." oh and today Stephen Harper announced taht Canada will have the office for the Freedom of Religious Studies starting today - Hmmm, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
"Many protestants through the ages have de-emphasized the role of baptism in the Christian faith. In reality, a number of the people involved in the Protestant Reformation came out of the Roman Catholic Church with a reverence for the holy mysteries and apostolic tradition. Martin Luther placed a great importance on baptism. Luther states in The Large Catechism of 1529 AD, "To put it most simply, the power, effect, benefit, fruit, and purpose of Baptism is to save. No one is baptized in order to become a prince, but as the words say, to 'be saved.' To be saved, we know, is nothing else than to be delivered from sin, death, and the devil and to enter into the kingdom of Christ and live with him forever." (Baptism; OrthodoxWiki)
The history of the term Roman Catholic...is quite interesting. This nomenclature came about after the ex-communication of Martin Luther...the Germanic monk...and catholic priest...who in the early 16th century...spoke out against abuses which he perceived in the then...catholic ( universal ) church. These included, the selling of indulgences and other aberrations...especially pertinent to doctrinal eisegesis. When Luther...would not relent...and was therefore excommunicated in 1521...this created a schism in the church. Those who remained loyal to Rome ( the Pope and the magisterium - the teaching authority of the church ), were from that time onward...called Roman Catholics. The protesters - were derogatorily referred to...as Protestant
menonitas Main article: Radical Reformation Spread of the early Anabaptists, 1525-1550 The early history of the Mennonites starts with the Anabaptists in the German and Dutch-speaking parts of central Europe. The German term is "Täufer" or "Wiedertäufer" (that is, Again-Baptists, or Anabaptists using the Greek ana, "again"). These forerunners of modern Mennonites were part of the broad reaction against the practices and theology of the Roman Catholic Church known as the Protestant Reformation. Its most distinguishing feature is the rejection of infant baptism, an act that had both religious and political meaning since almost every infant born in Western Europe was baptized into the Roman Catholic Church. Other significant theological views of the Mennonites developed in opposition to Roman Catholic views or to the views of other Protestant reformers such as Martin Luther and Huldrych Zwingli. Some of the followers of Zwingli's Reformed church felt that requiring church membership beginning at birth was ...

The Edict of Worms, issued in 1521, excommunicated Martin Luther and his followers from the Roman Catholic Church. Luther was branded an outlaw and permission was granted to kill him without legal consequence.
John Calvin Biography John Calvin Was a Giant in Reformed Christianity John Calvin (1509-1564), French theologian and church reformer. John Calvin possessed one of the most brilliant minds among Reformation theologians, sparking a movement that revolutionized the Christian Church in Europe, America, and ultimately the rest of the world. Calvin saw salvation differently than Martin Luther or the Roman Catholic Church. He taught that God divides humanity into two groups: the Elect, who will be saved and go to heaven, and the Reprobates, or damned, who will spend eternity in *** This doctrine is called predestination. Instead of dying for the sins of everyone, Jesus Christ died only for the sins of the Elect, Calvin said. This is called Limited Atonement or Particular Redemption. The Elect, according to Calvin, cannot resist God's call to salvation upon them. He called this doctrine Irresistible Grace. Finally, Calvin differed totally from Lutheran and Catholic theology with his doctrine of Perseverance of . ...
Thanksgiving Day as we know it today in America actually had its beginning in England before the 1600's. Beginning in 1517 (the year Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany) the Protestant Reformation began. The word Protestant, refers to those individuals who protested the manner in which the Roman Catholic Church operated, and protested the doctrines it taught. This Protestant Reformation continued for many years, and in a sense it still continues today, but in many different forms and against many different enemies. The original Protestant Reformation, which actually began in 1517, spread rapidly throughout the known world. It effected governments and religious organizations everywhere it went. In 1534, the English King Henry the VIII issued the Act of Supremacy, which made the king the head of the national church in England, which in turn greatly weakened the Roman Catholic hold over England. Then in 1558, under Queen Elizabeth I, (Henry the VIIIt ...
CHRISTIANITY? WHERE DID IT ORIGINATE? Malachi 1:2-3, "I have loved you, saith Yah. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother, saith Yah: yet I loved Jacob; but Esau I hated, and made his mountains a desolation, and gave his heritage to the jackals of the wilderness." It is prophesied in the Book of Jubilees that the Descendants of Esau will be completely DESTROYED. "And by thy sword wilt thou live, And thou wilt serve thy brother. And it shall come to pass when thou becomest great, And dost shake his yoke from off thy neck, Thou shalt sin a complete sin unto death, AND THY SEED SHALL BE ROOTED OUT FROM UNDER HEAVEN," Jubilees 26:34. The Seed of Esau through the Bloodline of Amelek became the Roman Empire. The Church of the Roman Empire is the Holy Roman Catholic Church. Under the Protests of Martin Luther, Christianity was born.

The Reformation of the 1500s changed a lot of things, but unwittingly it eventually affected the end-time beliefs of much of the Church. In the early 1500s, Martin Luther railed against the Roman Catholic Church, and in his passion, he called her the *** of Babylon and the Beast. To counter this, in 1585 a Jesuit priest by the name of Francisco Ribera published a 500-page work that placed Daniel 9:24-27, Matthew 24, and Revelation 4-19 in the distant future. This was the first thought of its kind, and it is the foundation of many modern end-time views. The significance of this new interpretation is that, rather than seeing these passages as fulfilled, now Ribera was saying they were still future. Historically speaking, Ribera’s new view did not gain momentum. In fact, his writing was lost until 1826, when Samuel Maitland, librarian to the Archbishop of Canterbury, rediscovered Ribera’s forgotten manuscript and published it for the sake of public interest and curiosity. When the book resurfaced, a sm . ...
I see that day when Peter II makes such proclamation to the modernists including the Concilair Popes. From Martin Luther's condemnation. It resonates loudly in this hour of heresy and apostasy starting form the top of the Church. "Arise, O Lord, and judge your own cause. Remember your reproaches to those who are filled with foolishness all through the day. Listen to our prayers, for foxes have arisen seeking to destroy the vineyard whose winepress you alone have trod. When you were about to ascend to your Father, you committed the care, rule, and administration of the vineyard, an image of the triumphant church, to Peter, as the head and your vicar and his successors. The wild boar from the forest seeks to destroy it and every wild beast feeds upon it. Rise, Peter, and fulfill this pastoral office divinely entrusted to you as mentioned above. Give heed to the cause of the holy Roman Church, mother of all churches and teacher of the faith, whom you by the order of God, have consecrated by your blood. Again ...
Thank you, Martin Luther, for calling out the lies of the Roman Catholic Church. Thesis All those who believe themselves certain of their own salvation by means of letters of indulgence, will be eternally damned, together with their teachers. Happy Reformation Week!

Understanding the Orthodox Church. Further Divisions in the West... During the centuries after A.D 1054, the growing distinction between East and West was becoming indelibly marked in the history. The Eastern Church (Both Oriental and Byzantine Orthodox Churches) maintained the full stream of New Testament faith, worship, and practice-all the while enduring great persecution from both Islamic forces and also from her western counterpart.( See the crusades, I will narrate about crusades latter).The Roman Catholic Church(Western Church) bogged down in many problems. Then, less than five centuries after Rome committed itself to its unilateral alteration of doctrine and practice, another upheaval occurred-this time inside the western gates. Although many in the west had spoken out against Roman domination and practice in earlier years, now a little-known German monk Martin Luther inadvertently launched an attack against Roman Catholic practices which ended up affecting world history. His list of Ninety Five T ...
The Roman Catholic Church wanted to put Martin Luther to death for standing on the Word of God.
In other words, this would be like either the Roman Catholic Church financing Martin Luther's Reformation or the...
I am going to vent about religion now. Some statisticians have announced that for the first time ever, America is no longer a majority Protestant nation. And one in five now say that they have no religious affiliation. I am glad that we count this stuff...and I thought it just points out that we are an increasingly diverse nation, and I think that is great. So the Roman Catholic Church in Germany has a solution to several problems. How to keep religious diversity out of Germany, and how to boost Catholic attendance...tax people through the government tax collection service for their religious affiliation. I am not making this up. If you list yourself as a member of the Catholic Church, the state will automatically deduct your tithe and send it to the church. I think they should go back to selling indulgences. Martin Luther is rolling over in his dusty grave.

We can not vilify currently-practicing Catholics for the past sins of their Church, anymore than we can hold children accountable for the sins of their fathers. However, this having been said, the Roman Catholic Church has had a strong political strand in its past, merging the pagan celebrations of equinoxes with Christian holidays, i.e., Easter (Spring Equinox) and Christmas (Winter Equinox) to make this emergent strand of Christianity more palatable to pagan converts. The Catholic Church (founded by Roman Emperor Constantine) established councils of men to determine proper dogma, i.e., Nicea. The Church also actively persecuted heretics (Cathars) to eliminate challengers to its orthodoxy. As a result, the Catholic Church created its own adversaries, such as Martin Luther.
The Western Roman Catholic Church experienced turmoil which caused Martin Luther to bring on The Reformation, which then mutated into the numerous Protestant sects we have today.
Henry viii of England - Took the throne at age 18, pursued a successful campaign in France, defeated a sizeable Scottish army, burned through a majority of the wealth amassed by his father, took six wives (of which 3 died prematurely [2 of which were executed for infidelity]), brought about the separation of the Church of England from the Roman Catholic Church, and wrote a treatise against Martin Luther's reformist ideals. If you can contribute additional details, please do so.
Quote from Arthur Grant Jr. IT IS UNITY THAT WE NEED IN THE CHURCH TODAY NOT MORE DIVISION.Martin Luther had a legitimate reason when he nailed his thesis to the wall and departed from the Roman Catholic Church. Sometimes I wonder were we blessed with denominations or cursed with it;but God reminds us always that there is one faith one baptism one resurrection one God and faith and one unity in Christ. Arthur Grant Jr.
I'm doing a study on Martin Luther (The 15 century reformer),I didn't know that he was studying to be a lawyer before a close call with lightning and he promised Saint Anne he would be come a monk. against his fathers wishes. And John Hus was righting and teaching reformation theology against the Roman Catholic Church well before Luther was on the scene. John Hus was burned at the stake on order of the Bishop for not recanting his writings. This Study is being prosented by R.C.Sproul and Ligonier Ministries
:( 1451 is the definitive split with the Roman Catholic Church, 71 years prior to Martin Luther breaking away...
Samuel Dessin wrote: The Antichrist’s Mark of Authority: “We here are of the conviction that the PAPACY is the seat of the true and real ANTICHRIST.” –Martin Luther "Sunday is our MARK of authority. The [Roman Catholic] church is ABOVE the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact." –The Catholic Record, London, Ontario, September 1, 1923.
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. (Ephesians 2:8 NLT) You may have heard the acronym -- GRACE -- God's Riches At Christ's Expense. We can NOT buy our way or any other's way to Heaven. The protestant movement was started by Martin Luther because the Roman Catholic Church taught the concept of indulgences, which was a decree from the "inerrant" pope. An indulgence was money paid to SPRING someone out of purgatory into Heaven. So the pope made a theological ERROR when he came up with purgatory AND indulgences. (Don't add to or take away from the Bible. I was raised a Roman Catholic before and I ditched that faith for a Biblical World View.)
If you really, truly want to learn the truth about Martin Luther's 95 thesis, and if you want to know the truth about how the funds were raised by the Roman Catholic Church to build the Vatican, and Saint Peter's Basilica, and many, many more interesting historical happenings, let me recommend "HISTORY of the REFORMATION of the 16th CENTURY", by ...J.H. Merle D'Aubigne, and also "THE LIGHT and the GLORY", by the same author. These books will keep you riveted to the pages as you laugh, cry, get angry, and fight battles that were unbelieveable. But these things are written by the eye witnesses to these most important pieces of our history. These books are not easily come by, you will most likely have to order them, but do yourself a favor and read these books, you will be glad you did!

Chase is to Jacob as Roman Catholic Church is to Martin Luther
Ok so I heard on a podcast today that apparently sometime ago the Roman Catholic Church officially declared Martin Luther sprung from purgatory. But I couldn't find any evidence for it on Google, so obviously it must not be true. Was hoping Leif E. Halvorson might be able to provide some additional insight.
Did Jesus Prescribe Amputation? By Dr. Joel Saripalli When the astute, William Tyndale (1494-1536) was translating the Scriptures into the English language, the Pope and his Roman Catholic hierarchy resisted him greatly. Even to the extent that Tyndale had to flee for his life and find refuge with the great Martin Luther. Tyndale later wrote in his Obedience of a Christian man: “The Pope’s dogma is bloody!” When ultimately the Romanists caught up with him, they rebuked him and demanded that he stop his translation work immediately. One of their reasons for objecting such a noble task was that if Tyndale had made the Scriptures accessible to everyone, then England would be a nation of handicapped people. That people would “pluck out their eyes; chop off their limbs, etc!” Since the Roman Catholic Church believes that the power to interpret Scriptures lies with their leaders and not with the laity, their opinion was that people would not be able to understand the Scriptures and thus misinterpr ...
Martin Luther believed that sin imprisoned mankind and made him unable to really redeem himself from the yoke of trespasses. This was the basis for his rejection of the sacrament of confession, sale of indulgence, pilgrimage, elaborate Catholic mass ritual, and prayer to saints. Interestingly, this belief was a direct opposite of his upbringing noting that he was brought up as a staunch Catholic by his Catholic parents. Therefore, Luther was always in a constant conflict with the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church doctrines which suggested the opposite, that is, man can redeem himself from sin through confession to a priest who had the capacity to intercede for forgiveness of sins. In the thought of Luther, this was wrong and misleading to the population practicing Christianity which he described as a personal and internalized relationship with Christ as the only true savior.
