Luther and the SacramentsPastor Lutzer | None
Whenever we add to the Word of God, we dilute the Word of God.
Selected highlights from this sermon
Martin Luther continued to defend his points, even though Rome declared him a heretic. Through his work, the Christian world shifted. Popes and councils were seen as able to make mistakes. Christians began to personally approach God through His Word, changing the clergy/laity distinction. The sacraments went from seven to just two—communion and baptism. Yes, debate continued, but a great deal of tradition was stripped away.
