Today’s era of despair, ennui, and selfishness can find remedies within ageless wisdom that the church reformer Martin Luther offered to his depressed friend 500 years ago.
The Catholic Church is a leftover of absolute power and rule by divine right, and this is a leading factor in its current crisis.
While this week is the anniversary of the first big publication associated with Protestant reformer Martin Luther, it wasn’t his most famous or world-changing work.
Protestant churches will claim a doctrinally correct view of justification, but what the doctrine means has no bearing on their worship practices. Not so with many Catholics.
In case you missed the memo, this October 31 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses on the Wittenberg doors, beginning the Protestant Reformation.
In Catholics’ eyes, our admiration for Martin Luther is as misguided as holding a big party in honor of one’s divorce.
Lamentations over the Reformation tend to focus on, not theology, but what are viewed as its inevitable and detrimental social and political consequences.
European churches marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation this year are also marking the end of Christianity on the continent.
Nearly 500 years later, Reformation Day’s biggest debate still rages. And history shows Martin Luther was right.
