I know what you said. But you made it sound as though, therefore, it was not to be trusted.
Where Luther is to be criticized, I will criticize him. Where he is to be praised, I will praise him.
Let’s hear it.
Are you willing to do the same for people like Eck?
Who’s interested in Eck? You are apparently the only one. Consider the difference between the two men. Eck wasn’t the cause of a revolution that gutted the Church.
New Advent won’t. They fail to mention his anti-Judaism writings (I’m sure the authors knew about them).
But Eck’s existence does not justify Luther’s errors. Nor is this the New Advent site. So, why are you mentioning him? It’s as I said, you seek to justify Luther by claiming that others also held his errors. But that is false logic.
From everyone’s perspective. That’s why we find it incredible that there is now a stamp printed in his honor.
Sure it does. But the fact remains that Luther gave his enemies too much ammo. He literally gave everyone the rope with which to hang him on his own gibbet.
Which polemicist spun these words?
If the wife is unwilling, bring on the maid!
Sin and sin mightily and grace will abound the more.
I would rather commit a nice, big, juicy sin, just to prove to Satan that I’m not afraid of him.
Go ahead, get another wife. Just make sure to keep it a secret.
And there are so many other unbelievably immoral things that he said and did, that it makes one’s head spin. There is only one person to blame for this. Luther. Not Eck. Not the Pope. Not anyone but, Luther.
