According to this quote, Martin Luther sounds like a good Baptist!
Filed under Bible and Theology, History
Yes and Luther himself said that the most important thing was to be faithful to God’s word:
“I beg people to have the goodness not to use my name and not to call themselves Lutherans, but Christians. For what is Luther? This doctrine in no way belongs to me; I have not been crucified for anyone…It is the papists who rightly bear a partisan name, since they are not satisfied with teaching and name of Christ but wish to be also the pope’s disciples. As for me I am no one’s master and nor do I wish to be. I share with the whole community this common and unique teaching of Christ who alone is our master.”
