It was in asserting this free and unconditional offer of God's grace to faith that Luther broke with the Roman doctrine of justification, which teaches increasing degrees of grace, and that to become worthy to share in grace man must in each degree do "what in him lies." The desire was for the Church of England to resemble more closely the Protestant churches of Europe, especially Geneva.

Since Jesus taught that true church would always continue (cf. Lutheranism, however, does allow for the public ministry of a few whom the laity designate from their own ranks. The righteousness of good works refers to man in relation to his neighbor (coram hominibus). It was this coalition that had to deal with the allies and that was forced to accept the humiliating Versailles Treaty, an act that, in the eyes of most Germans, discredited Weimar from the very beginning.

However, the point of the new birth in an individual life and the catechesis that follows is not to indoctrinate them in a kind of me-and-my-Bible individualism, but rather to help them form a deep-seated, personal relationship to the faith. He insists that his beliefs are consistent with Catholic teaching. Luther looked into the heart of Christ and there found the heart of God, but fo Calvin neither Christ nor God had much heart.

Luther), and Calvinism, due to their false view of the Fall, deny the efficacy and capacity of human reason to know God to some extent (both sides agree that revelation and grace are also necessary), and oppose it to God and faith, contrary to Christian Tradition and the Bible ( Mk 12:28; Lk 10:27; Jn 20:24-29; Acts 1:3; Acts 17:2, Acts 17:17, Acts 17:22-34; Acts 19:8 ). How many Calvinists cite Bondage of the Will as virtually a Calvinist text, having no idea that Luther rejected the rest of the TULIP?

Marty is Associate Editor of The Christian Century and contributing editor to several other publications, including The American Lutheran. It was a rational extension of the state-approved Protestant dissent, which took the value of independence from constituted authority a step further, arguing the same for the civic realm. Catholics, it is true, didn’t define opposition to war, though always a minority opinion, as heresy – that was left to Protestants who made opposition to it anathema in the Westminster Confession.
