Luther And The SacramentsErwin W. Lutzer | None
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.
