    according to my understanding on this topic, I found that the theses of Martin Luther was not a doctrine but He search for the truth. that means he did not want to form another church but to correct the error he saw in that church.But why did people said that he was the founder of the Lutheran Church??

    It’s true that he aspired to bring the Christian faith back in line with the original teachings and doctrines. However, his efforts led to the formation of a smaller faction of believers that came to be known as the Lutherans

    Marae: The Church was even more political (and tied to the State) than it was today. Remember the “Divine Right of King” concept. Luther (who had is Ph.D. by the way)was concerned for his people as well as his own person salvation. At the Diet of Worms (Worms being a city in Germany) he was told to explain himself, and eventually to recant. This led to his “Here I Stand” statement saying he could not recant God’s Truth. Politics, again: certain German Princes put Luther under their protection since, as a result of all this, Luther was excommunicated and a wanted/hunted man. Luther’s advisers convinced him the only way to correct the errors was to “reform”, vis-a-vis, start a new church. So while Luther did not go in wanting a reformation, change of events brought him to that end.

  • I love the way how you hit upon those events in a sequential manner Karl. Thanks for your input =)

    To bad he never did go far enough and denounce the entire institutional church. But that leaves room for the new reformation.

    it is well written, but content does not satisfy me. more elaboration is needed.

    I have to do a paper on this and I feel this was really helpful.
