Skip to comments.Luther’s Revenge: The Neo-Catholic Surrender to Protestantism

Third, Akins argument that a commemoration of the Reformation is not a celebration of it borders on deliberate deception. Akin cites favorably From Conflict to Communion: The Lutheran-Catholic Common Commemoration of the Reformation in 2017. This deplorable piece of trash, which portrays the destroyer of Christendom and his fellow reformers as laudable Christians who had no desire to found a new church, was produced jointly by the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity, which would more aptly be named the Pontifical Council for the Prevention of Christian Unity. The LWFs member sects are so doctrinally and morally debased that the more conservative Lutherans want nothing to do with the organization or its feckless ecumenical dialogue with the Vatican.
At Lund, Pope Bergoglio accepted precisely LWFs invitation to celebrate with them the Reformation, with female pretend clergy included in the appalling spectacle. In addition to participating in a joint liturgy with pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Lutheran lay people in clerical costumes, Bergoglio lent the prestige of the papal office to a Joint Declaration which states: we are profoundly thankful for the spiritual and theological gifts received through the Reformation, followed immediately by the lie that we also confess and lament before Christ that Lutherans and Catholics have wounded the visible unity of the Church. Catholics did not wound the visible unity of the Church by remaining members of it, nor by opposing the heresies of the Reformerswhich, absurdly enough, CA also claims to be doing at the same time it minimizes the same heresies to the point of irrelevance so that Bergoglios antics will seem defensible.

Neo Catholics surrendered, true Catholics did not. This is what Pope BVXI meant when he said a smaller more vibrant church.
No, he said he would like to fart in the face of the devil
Who farts - and is he still on first base?
I had missed that.
I have to say, my old pastor really regretted let up read that stuff in confirmation class. Well, he did until he started laughing with us.
Is that one of the ZZTop?
What is the actual quote from, the Iconic, Luther?
“What is the actual quote from, the Iconic, Luther?”
About angels dancing on the head of a pin? That’s not from Luther - actually no one knows where the quote came from. It is not medieval in origin or at least no one can find any evidence of it. Chillingworth, an Anglican divine from the 16th or 17th century was the first person to publish that quote but he offered no citation.
If you mean some other quote, I have no idea which one you’re referring to.
I own, and others doubtless do the same, that there is not now such earnestness in the Gospel as formerly under the monks and priests when so many foundations were made, when there was so much building and no one was so poor as not to be able to give. But now there is not a town willing to support a preacher, there is nothing but plundering and thieving among the people and no one can prevent it. Whence comes this shameful plague? (Grisar, Luther, Vol. 6, p.54)
>>About angels dancing on the head of a pin?
Warmer, but, nope.
But don't feel bad, because...
"uhh, we're sorry"
--LCMS circa 1983
...Lutherans didn't address the historical facts in their curriculum, at any level, either.
Seems German leaders however, having published an annotated version of Mein Kampf, are being a bit more proactive about not repeating the errors of the past, these days.
Catholic countries are turning Protestant. (The Pope is a Lutheran.) And Protestant countries have turned atheist.
Part of the problem was Global Cooling. Greatly increased poverty.
>>Whence comes this shameful plague?
There is nothing new under the Aten!
“And Protestant countries have turned atheist.”
Well, Pope Pius X did say that the one led to the other.
I read that as Mary, not Marty, and thought, “That’s about right.”
That’s interesting. Back in the nineties, a book purporting to do a psycho-analysis on Hitler was banned by the govt, on the notion that to understand all was to forgive all. I think it eventually made its way into print.
