Christians Killing Christians: The Story of the RebaptizersPastor Lutzer | March 18, 2007
The Anabaptists were martyred for advocating the separation of church and state.
Selected highlights from this sermon
In addition to Lutheranism, Calvinism, and Zwinglianism, there was fourth party in the Reformation movement: the Anabaptists. Seeing the terrible corruption of Christianity throughout history by the close relationship of church and state, they sought to separate the two.
Forsaking practices like infant baptism, the Anabaptists were branded as rebels by all parties, and were martyred by the hundreds. But the Anabaptist movement continues to inform our age, encouraging the separation of church and state.
