HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PROTESTANTISM “ALL HALLOWS EVE RAGES”

The Luther-ism Burns St Paul’s letter to the Romans Chapter 6 into STRAW

Luther’s DUALISMS are presented, apparently not a conflict for Name Only Believers?

OVERVIEW:

Ever since the birth of protestant reforming, bible christians take liberties with the Word of God. Without an official interpreter, the individual is pleased to believe whatsoever he wants to believe that he reads in the bible, or later translates. The disunity and lack of harmony from one brother to another sister is how God must want it “Liberty, freedom, equality, and individual-ism,” these values reign over faith not unity as Jesus prayed, Chapter John17. Martin Luther their Father in Sole Fide and four other 1 things Only, pervert or ignore the Truth and Holy Scriptures. The cleverness of Satan, that all can worthily read scripture and determine for themselves the real meaning appeals to our human “ego.”

Luther learned some of his christian teaching when he hid in a Augustinian Monastery, after shooting his neighbor, or brother in Christ. From this auspicious beginning he convinced the Monks of the monastery he too was their to be a monk, never admitting he needed “sanctuary”. After becoming a monk, he later translated the entire scriptures into German. Turns out in doing his research, he decided he preferred the Hebrew texts to the Septuagint, he wasn’t in FULL Accord, with his fellow Catholics, the Early Fathers or even Christ’s witnesses, the Apostles (ie. James the Less Bishop of Jerusalem). He found new ideas in his readings.

One such, idea that Martin Luther disagreed with Christ’s Church was in redemption, what was necessary for redemption, and ultimately developed his new religion centering on “the five Alone Things.” Called Sola’s – Latin for One. As most know, the protestant movement determined that 7 books were apocryphal and should be listed in the back as an appendix, then two hundred years later, these decedents almost universally decided to drop them altogether.

  • Here are Martin Luther’s FIVE one things, necessary. The illogic of five necessary one thing is inescapable to me as a Catholic.
  1. Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”): The Bible alone is our highest authority. (? what about Acts2:41, Rom10:17)
  2. Sola Fide(“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ. (see Rom:10:17 and below)
  3. Sola Gratia (“grace alone”): We are saved by the grace of God alone.
  4. Solus Christus(“Christ alone”): Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King.
  5. Soli Deo Gloria (“to the glory of God alone”): We live for the glory of God alone.

City- Despite these self delusions, the Luther that writes “Preface to the Letter of St Paul to the Romans”, is Not the Luther that is being quoted in the everyday Evangelical “christians in name only” circles….Today, these christians pervert and scandalize even their own Father of Disunity to what Martin Luther felt was some of his best preaching. See below .

St Paul Letter to the Romans Chapter 6 Verses 11-18 ( DRB – Douay-Rheims Bible )

So do you also reckon, that you are dead to sin, but alive unto God, in Christ Jesus our Lord. [12] Let no sin therefore reign in your mortal body, so as to obey the lusts thereof. [13] Neither yield ye your members as instruments of iniquity unto sin; but present yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of justice unto God. [14] For sin shall not have dominion over you; for you are not under the law, but under grace. [15] What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. [16] Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are whom you obey, whether it be of sin unto death, or of obedience unto justice. [17] But thanks be to God, that you were the servants of sin, but have obeyed from the heart, unto that form of doctrine, into which you have been delivered. [18] Being then freed from sin, we have been made servants of justice.” {reading of 10/23/19 Roman}

City– God wrote the Law into our hearts, and because we are Baptized Christians and Love God, we do our best with God’s grace to sin NO MORE, and AVOID the near occasion of SIN.

LUTHER ONCE PREACHED ST. PAUL:

Opening paragraph…….of Luther’ writing “Preface to the Letter of St. Paul to the Romans”

This letter is truly the most important piece in the New Testament. It is purest Gospel. It is well worth a Christian’s while not only to memorize it word for word but also to occupy himself with it daily, as though it were the daily bread of the soul. It is impossible to read or to meditate on this letter too much or too well. The more one deals with it, the more precious it becomes and the better it tastes. Therefore I want to carry out my service and, with this preface, provide an introduction to the letter, insofar as God gives me the ability, so that every one can gain the fullest possible understanding of it. Up to now it has been darkened by glosses

[explanatory notes and comments which accompany a text]

and by many a useless comment, but it is in itself a bright light, almost bright enough to illumine the entire Scripture.

Luther commentary on Romans chapter 6:

In chapter 6, St. Paul takes up the special work of faith, the struggle which the spirit wages against the flesh to kill off those sins and desires that remain after a person has been made just. He teaches us that faith doesn’t so free us from sin that we can be idle, lazy and self-assured, as though there were no more sin in us. Sin is there, but, because of faith that struggles against it, God does not reckon sin as deserving damnation. Therefore we have in our own selves a lifetime of work cut out for us; we have to tame our body, kill its lusts, force its members to obey the spirit and not the lusts. We must do this so that we may conform to the death and resurrection of Christ and complete our Baptism, which signifies a death to sin and a new life of grace.Our aim is to be completely clean from sin and then to rise bodily with Christ and live forever. …..St. Paul says that we can accomplish all this because we are in grace and not in the law.

St. Paul says that we can accomplish all this because we are in grace and not in the law. He explains that to be “outside the law” is not the same as having no law and being able to do what you please. No, being “under the law” means living without grace, surrounded by the works of the law. Then surely sin reigns by means of the law, since no one is naturally well-disposed toward the law. That very condition, however, is the greatest sin. But grace makes the law lovable to us, so there is then no sin any more, and the law is no longer against us but one with us.

This is true freedom from sin and from the law; St. Paul writes about this for the rest of the chapter. He says it is a freedom only to do good with eagerness and to live a good life without the coercion of the law. This freedom is, therefore, a spiritual freedom which does not suspend the law but which supplies what the law demands, namely eagerness and love. These silence the law so that it has no further cause to drive people on and make demands of them. It’s as though you owed something to a moneylender and couldn’t pay him. You could be rid of him in one of two ways: either he would take nothing from you and would tear up his account book, or a pious man would pay for you and give you what you needed to satisfy your debt. That’s exactly how Christ freed us from the law. Therefore our freedom is not a wild, fleshy freedom that has no obligation to do anything. On the contrary, it is a freedom that does a great deal, indeed everything, yet is free of the law’s demands and debts

…………………………….ending paragraph.

Without doubt, whoever takes this letter to heart possesses the light and power of the Old Testament. Therefore each and every Christian should make this letter the habitual and constant object of his study. God grant us his grace to do so. Amen. THE END Included from Luther’s Preface on Romans

Today, his children “bible” “evangelical” N.O. christians express their pride in Martin Luther teaching with the following:

Luther tells us to “Sin Boldy” City has I even heard one such evangelical spiritually minded soul evangelizing to me, on one of Jesus last words, while on the cross. Jesus says “It is finished.” That this reference to finished was Jesus telling his followers, the work of the Father “redemption” is all accomplished. He knew we are sinners by nature and would just go on sinning, so he took all this into account on the Cross for him and all of us. Therefore, when his church receives donations for the poor, robbing the church’s donated food pantry, or taking first dibbs of charitable clothing or house wares, is orderly behavior, even sanctioned by the pastor, for their WORKS. Having a few mistresses on the side and taking the donations, such as, fresh hams to them, etc. all this, was doing good works, at the “heart of God’s work”. After-all, we are saved by faith alone, Sole Fide? uh?

At first, City considered that as time eroded Luther’s words were maligned, to utter and complete destruction and debasement of his preaching, after I read his commentary on Romans and specifically, Chapter 6: above:

BUT IS IT?:

The following is attributed to Martin Luther: Luthers commentary per Enders, Briefwechsel

“Our faith in Christ makes His merits our possession, envelops us in the garb of righteousness, which our guilt and sinfulness hide, and supplies in abundance every defect of human righteousness. “Be a sinner and sin on bravely, but have stronger faith and rejoice in Christ, who is the victor of sin, death, and the world. Do not for a moment imagine that this life is the abiding place of justice: sin must be committed. To you it ought to be sufficient that you acknowledge the Lamb that takes away the sins of the world, the sin cannot tear you away from him, even though you commit adultery a hundred times a day and commit as many murders” (Enders, “Briefwechsel”, III, 208).

City – When we read the above. The current perversions of todays, “In Name Only christians,” I see this coincides to the Martin Luther later thinking, that Enders quoted above. Looking further we find the following Luther-ism instructions:

Luther the reformer had become Luther the revolutionary; the religious agitation had become a political rebellion. Luther’s theological attitude at this time, as far as a formulated cohesion can be deduced, was as follows: One tenant of his new faith :Faith alone can work justification, and man is saved by confidently believing that God will pardon him. This faith not only includes a full pardon of sin, but also an unconditional release from its penalties.”

Also this Apologist on Luther’s Behalf:




<!– @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } –>
This abnormal condition produced a brooding melancholy, physical, mental, and spiritual depression, which later, by a strange process of reasoning, he ascribed to the teaching of the Church concerning good works, while all the time he was living in direct and absolute opposition to its doctrinal teaching and disciplinary code. However, many writers regard his satanic manifestations as pure delusions. Need we be surprised that one of his old admirers, whose name figured with his on the original Bull of excommunication, concludes that Luther “with his shameless, ungovernable tongue, must have lapsed into insanity or been inspired by the Evil Spirit”

(Pirkheimer, ap. *Döllinger, “Die Reformation”, Ratisbon, I, 1846-48).

And This:

On 19 Jan., Carlstadt, now forty-one years of age, married a young girl of fifteen, an act that called forth the hearty endorsement of Luther; on 9 or 10 Feb., Justus Jonas, and about the same time, Johann Lange, prior of the Augustinian monastery at Erfurt, followed his example. On Christmas Day (1521) Carlstadt, “in civilian dress, without any vestment”, ascended the pulpit, preached the “evangelical liberty” of taking Communion under two kinds, held up Confession and absolution to derision, and railed against fasting as an unscriptural imposition. He next proceeded to the altar and said Mass in German, omitting all that referred to its sacrificial character, left out the elevation of the Host, and in conclusion extended a general invitation to all to approach and receive the Lord’s Supper, by individually taking the Host in their hands and drinking from the chalice.

ibid

City – Now some forms of this abomination of the 16th century Carlstadt,, have been ushered into the Catholic Church in the name of Ecumenism. We find priests and laity in parishes taking such liberties as if another reformation is occurring, of particular note the commonality of taking the Eucharist in the hand and drinking from the cup, that On Christmas Day (1521) Carlstadt, “in civilian dress, without any vestment.” BELOW a bishop says mass in the sand of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Beach Mass ??? Solas of Luther-ism, Fruit of Ecumenism imo!

What of Sola Fide, what are we to thing of Luther’s selectivity of verse and avoids the whole: (List) Rom3:27-28 Vs. all this:

What shall it profit, my brethren, if a man say he hath faith, but hath not works? Shall faith be able to save him?”So faith also, if it have not works, is dead in itself.” “But some man will say: Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without works; and I will shew thee, by works, my faith.” “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?( City? -Did James write this for Martin Luther?)” “Seest thou, that faith did co-operate with his works; and by works faith was made perfect?””Do you see that by works a man is justified; and not by faith only?” For even as the body without the spirit is dead; so also faith without works is dead.(Jas2:14, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26)

James the Less, cousin of Jesu, Bother of St John – Apostle, Fishing partner w/ St. Peter, First Bishop of Jerusalem According to Luther wrote an Epistle of “STRAW”
REALLY?

But knowing that man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ; we also believe in Christ Jesus, that we may be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: because by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.” (Gal2:16) “For what if some of them have not believed? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid.” (Rom3:3)

Wherefore leaving the word of the beginning of Christ, let us go on to things more perfect, not laying again the foundation of penance from dead works, and of faith towards God,” (Heb6:1) “But to him that work not, yet believeth in him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is reputed to justice, according to the purpose of the grace of God.” (Rom4:5) “But he that discerns, if he eat, is condemned; because not of faith. For all that is not of faith is sin.” (Rom14:23) {speaking of the Holy Eucharist} “Jesus answered them: I speak to you, and you believe not: the works that I do in the name of my Father, they give testimony of me.” “Jesus answered them: Many good works I have shewed you from my Father; for which of these works do you stone me?”If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.” “But if I do, though you will not believe me, believe the works: that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.(Jn10:25, 32, 37-38)

They answered, and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith to them: ‘If you be the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham’.”“Do you not believe, that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak to you, I speak not of myself. But the Father who abideth in me, he doth the works.” “Otherwise believe for the very works’ sake. Amen, amen I say to you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do, he also shall do; and greater than these shall he do.” (Jn8:39; 14:10, 12)

Jesus answered, and said to them: This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he hath sent.” (Jn6:29) And he said to his servants: This is John the Baptist: he is risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works shew forth themselves in him. (Mt14:2) And king Herod heard, (for his name was made manifest,) and he said: John the Baptist is risen again from the dead, and therefore mighty works shew forth themselves in him.” (Mk6:14) …“It is a faithful saying: and these things I will have thee affirm constantly: that they, who believe in God, may be careful to excel in good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.“(Tit 3:8)“By his inclinations a child is known, if his works be clean and right.(Proverbs 20:11) The fear of God is the beginning of his love: and the beginning of faith is to be fast joined unto it.”(Ecclesiasticus (Sirach) 25:16)

“And thou shalt say to them: This is a nation which hath not hearkened to the voice of the Lord their God, nor received instruction: Faith is lost, and is carried away out of their mouth.” (Jer7:28)
