It is true that Martin Luther did not want to divide the Church. He wanted to reform the Church on his own terms, which was not genuine reform. Luther if the Pope taught the pure Gospel of his conception: “The chief cause that I fell out with the pope was this: the pope boasted that he was the head of the Church, and condemned all that would not be under his power and authority; for he said, although Christ be the head of the Church, yet, notwithstanding, there must be a corporal head of the Church upon earth. With this I could have been content, had he but taught the gospel pure and clear, and not introduced human inventions and lies in its stead.” Further he accuses the corruption of conscience by listening to the Church as opposed to Scripture: “But the papists, against their own consciences, say, No; we must hear the Church.” This points us back to the crucial issue of authority, pointed out by Belloc.


My first real experience with the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr

the places where today’s emerging adults have taken that individualism in religion basically continues the cultural trajectory launched by Martin Luther five centuries ago and propelled along the way by subsequent development of evangelical individualism, through revivalism, evangelism and pietism. . . . Furthermore, the strong individualistic subjectivism in the emerging adult religious outlook—that “truth” should be decided by “what seems right” to individuals, based on their personal experience and feelings—also has deep cultural-structural roots in American evangelicalism.

On that day on Jan. 15, 1981, the majority of the black students at Loyola (there are a few who didn’t, and to this day, I can remember their names) sat in their seats and said nothing when called upon. It was an act of defiance that was unmistakable and, frankly, jarring to the Jesuits. And yet, understanding King’s philosophy that said nonviolent change was revolutionary, we risked our spots at Loyola to create our own small revolution.

Zwingli and Luther disagreed on pretty much every major point: Luther held that the Sacraments conveyed prevenient Grace, Zwingli rejected that, Luther held that the Sacrament of Holy Communion is “the True Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ,” Zwingli claimed the Sacrament was purely symbolic; Luther sought reform of the Church, Zwingli worked for separation (sectarianism).

In fact, Martin Luther discovered his revolutionary, theological positions about a year before he posted his 95 theses. Probably in the year 1516, while lecturing on Romans at the seminary in Wittenburg, Luther had a pivotal experience, which shaped the way he viewed the Christian faith. Essentially, his “tower experience,” resolved his difficulty of conscience. He saw God and His commandments as a moral threat:

If they could bring it about therefore, to calm and quiet his Majesty's Spirit from working upon them that way; as they see his Majesty's sweetness to be far from drawing of their bloods the other way, they would deem it a greater Conquest, then all the conversions of the Kings of the East and West-Indes they tell us so many tales of: For they look upon his Majesty's Books, as men look upon Blazing-Stars, with amazement, fearing they portend some strange thing, and bring with them a certain Influence to work great change and alteration in the world: Neither is their expectation herein deceived; for we have seen with our eyes, the Operation of his Majesty's Workes in the Consciences of their men so far, as from their highest Conclave to their lowest Cells, there have been, that have been converted by them; and that in such number, as we want rather means to maintain them, then they minds to come to us."
