        REFORMATION 500

  Martin Luther

 

"[Christ] is everywhere, but he does not wish that you grope for him everywhere.  Grope rather where the Word is, and there you will lay hold of him the right way."

----Martin Luther

“If, unfortunately, there are things in Rome which cannot be improved, there is not---nor can there be!---any reason for tearing oneself away from the church schism,.  Rather, the worse things become, the more one should help her and stand by her, for by schism and contempt nothing can be mended.”

----Martin Luther

“The church needs a reformation which is not the work of man, namely the pope, or of many men, namely the cardinals, both of which the most recent council has demonstrated, but it is the work of the whole world, indeed it is the work of God alone.  However, only God who has created time knows the time for this reformation.”

----Martin Luther

Reformation Figures

Joachim Vadian (1484 – 1551)

An ally of Zwingli, Swiss humanist Vadian, became mayor of St. Gallen, Swtizerland, in 1526 and converted the city to Protestantism.

Things You May Not Know About Luther

Luther’s chief complaint in the 95 Theses was bad preaching and how it undermined the listerners’ faith in God.

Things you may not know about the Reformation

The Reformation created a demand for all kinds of religious writings.  Readership was so great that the number of books printed in Germany increased from about 150 in 1518 to nearly 1,000 six years later.

Things Luther taught that you may not know

Luther wanted us to be sure that Christ’s work is “for us” (LW, Vol. 34).  But the strength of one’s faith is not his hang-up.  Even a weak faith saves, Luther said (LW, 12:262).  In fact, when it comes to salvation, we’re passive------getters, not givers (LW, Vol. 52).

Reformation Hymns

"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" Written in the late 1520s and first circulated as an inexpensive single-sheet broadside, Martin Luther's metrical commemtary on Psalm 46 has probably been translated more frequently than any other hymn in church history.  Luther and his contemporaries viewed this text asone of "comfort" in the face of adversity, confessing Christ as "the Lord of hosts by name" and reminding us that "no other God we claim."

"I'm Going on a Journey"  In the Large Catechism, Martin Luther wrote that it is baptism "by which we are first received into the Christian community."  This hymn reminds us that whatever "roads[we]trod," our heads are dripping wet with the mark of Christ and sign of God's love.
