    I, Martin Luther, slew all the peasants in the rebellion, for I said that they should be slain

    I wouldn't mind a civil discussion about Reformation era intolerance. It's a complicated topic, especially from our "modern" and Western perspective. Most of the CARM Schwärmereien (if I've got that plural tense right!) have no interest in meaningful dialog but rather simply spew out their...

    I, Martin Luther, slew all the peasants in the rebellion, for I said that they should be slain

    THE OP is mish-mash of typical anti-Luther propaganda. First, it includes a selective cut-and-paste of someone else's work. 2) It does a slight-of-hand with "Luther did not stop there" by conflating it with a 1536 synod Luther did not attend, nor was he the one that called for the synod (and it...

    I, Martin Luther, slew all the peasants in the rebellion, for I said that they should be slain

    That's correct. Luther's Against the Robbing and Murdering Hordes of Peasants (the very document in which Luther called for the slaying of the peasants) was actually published after the peasants war began. The treatise was delayed, and did not have an immediate role during the war.

    See here. Luther: I Have Slain all the Peasants.

    I, Martin Luther, slew all the peasants in the rebellion, for I said that they should be slain

    Two quick questions. 1. Did Luther actually attend the 1536 synod? 2. Are you using the word "Anabaptists" as synonymous with the word "peasants"? Thanks.

    Shared altar / pulpit

    "as a whole" is well stated. If I recall correctly, the way scholarship on Anabaptist history has moved is that actually defining who composed the group known as "Anabaptists" is a bit tricky. Some were peaceful, some were seditious and intolerant. Some had wacky end-times theology, some did...

    Decisional, vs, Divine regeneration

    This is a bogus Luther quote. Regards.

    The Roman Catholic concept of the Atonement

    Yeah, sort of like why did it take so long for Papal infallibility to be recognized and approved as an explicit dogma? [In other words, if your argument works against your own position, it isn't a valid argument]. Regards.

    The confession heard 'round the world!

    Um... I think I used "Smalcald articles" and "latin" or perhaps I used the German title + Latin. begin preaching to the choir: In essence, I think it's really a quibbling point. Luther used words like "pure" and "holy" in regard to Mary not to indicate her lifelong sinlessness, and for...

    The confession heard 'round the world!

    Interestingly (at least to me), I may have actually found a scan of Luther's own penmanship of this section, see this link. I can't make any of it out. He wrote some of the document, but dictated some of it due to kidney stones (as per the link in my previous post). Edited to add: Here is the...

    The confession heard 'round the world!

    That isn't what Luther wrote. As per Jaroslav Pelikan (who is not a member of the CARM forums due to being a lot smarter than all of us here and also being dead), the Latin text of the Smalcald Articles is a translation of the original German text. The original German text did not contain the...

    The confession heard 'round the world!

    The silly silly part about Luther and James etc. is that almost the overwhelming majority of people who raise this canard do so at the expense of history and engage in blatant anachronism. They fail to ask these basic questions: Why did Luther have the reaction he did to do the book of James...

    The confession heard 'round the world!

    Wow then I'm totally confused. The "Luther" in Timket's posts doesn't match up to the popular "Luther" in the sixteenth century, so I thought it was the black civil rights leader.

    The confession heard 'round the world!

    Wow, I've saved your post with all this shocking information! And here, all along I thought he was just a popular civil rights leader who had a dream!

    In Jesus Name ?

    It's on the Internet, so it must be true. Yawn.

    Why Was This Omitted?

    No, I'm not "saying" that. I'm saying that you appear to not understand what Luther's point was in the context he said it in, even with my taking the time to explain it to you in an earlier post.

    Why Was This Omitted?

    It was the catholic church. It still is named that. It appears you cited Luther without actually understand his point.

    Why Was This Omitted?

    Context context context. Is Luther conceding an infallible church gave us the canon? Absolutely not. Is Luther saying an infallible extra-biblical tradition produced the Canon? No. Luther is simply saying that he learned about the Scriptures, Baptism, and the Pulpit, etc. from the church of his...
