The Ignorance of Martin Luther and The Satanic Detriment to the Church

The Ignorance of Martin Luther and The Satanic Detriment to the Church
Martin Luther was correct when he spoke out about the diabolical condition of the Church. 
In a letter to Pope Leo X on September 6th, 1520, where Martin Luther wrote of the Christianity of his day, that the church, “…once the holiest of all, has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).

But Martin Luther lacked any degree of intelligence to understand man's higher Soul-Reality.  In fact, Martin Luther portrayed man's superior as the greatest enemy of the Truth: “Reason”, writes Luther, “is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but - more frequently than not - struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes). 

In his ignorance of the allegorical meaning of the scriptures, Luther blamed women for the fall of mankind: “God created Adam master and lord of living creatures”, Luther writes, “but Eve spoilt all, when she persuaded him to set himself above God's will. Tis you women, with your tricks and artifices, that lead men into error” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).  Yet, the allegorical account of Adam and Eve was not historical (see Original Sin And Spiritual Osmosis ).

Luther's prescribed treatment of the common man closely resembles that of the Islamic terrorists who torture those who oppose their religious tents of belief. Thus Luther writes: "Like the mules who will not move unless you perpetually whip them with rods, so the civil powers must drive the common people, whip, choke, hang, burn, behead and torture them, that they may learn to fear the powers that be." (El. ed. 15, 276, quoted by O'Hare, in 'The Facts About Luther, TAN Books, 1987, p. 235.) Further stating: "A peasant is a hog, for when a hog is slaughtered it is dead, and in the same way the peasant does not think about the next life, for otherwise he would behave very differently." ('Schlaginhaufen,' 'Aufzeichnungen,' p. 118, quoted ibid., p. 241)

His hatred of the Jews is legendary: "Jews are young devils damned to hell." ('Luther's Works,' Pelikan, Vol. XX, pp. 2230.) Even condoning Islamic type violence against them: "Burn their synagogues. Forbid them all that I have mentioned above. Force them to work and treat them with every kind of severity, as Moses did in the desert and slew three thousand... If that is no use, we must drive them away like mad dogs, in order that we may not be partakers of their abominable blasphemy and of all their vices, and in order that we may not deserve the anger of God and be damned with them. I have done my duty. Let everyone see how he does his. I am excused." ('About the Jews and Their Lies,' quoted by O'Hare, in 'The Facts About Luther, TAN Books, 1987, p. 290.)

Martin Luther encouraged Christians to gleefully live in sin.  In Luther's own words: "Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong, but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world. We will commit sins while we are here, for this life is not a place where justice resides... No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day." ('Let Your Sins Be Strong, from 'The Wittenberg Project;' 'The Wartburg Segment', translated by Erika Flores, from Dr. Martin Luther's Saemmtliche Schriften, Letter No. 99, 1 Aug. 1521.) Luther believed that man is a congenital sinner, because of the Original Sin of Adam and Eve, and that only those who God saves, will receive salvation.

Jesus taught that his followers must become the "good ground" in the parable of  The Sower And The Seed  .  Jesus warned that if his followers are "Lawless", that they will be rejeced -- i.e., "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, by their fruit you will recognize them. Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!" (Matt 7:19-23).  Yet, in a total rejection of the teachings of Jesus, "Luther went as far as to state that those who attempt to live a pious life, have themselves rejected Christ: "Those pious souls who do good to gain the Kingdom of Heaven not only will never succeed, but they must even be reckoned among the impious; and it is more important to guard them against good works than against sin." (Wittenberg, VI, 160, quoted by O'Hare, in 'The Facts About Luther, TAN Books, 1987, p. 122.). 

In his ignorance, Luther rejected the Spiritual Life taught by Jesus -- see The Spiritual Holistic Lifestyle
