Martin Luther Refuted
By David J. Stewart
"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there
shall be false
teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies..." —2nd Peter 2:1
I am amazed that so many believers today still recognize and actively promote Martin Luther (1483-1546) as a great man of God. The truth is that Martin Luther was a lying heretic who taught Baptismal Regeneration and Sacramental Salvation. Hell is filled with religious people who trusted in their “MANY WONDERFUL WORKS” (Matthew 7:21-23). We are saved solely by completely resting in Christ's sacrifice for our sins upon the cross and His resurrection. Adding any human effort corrupts the plan of salvation.
Luther is famous for stumbling across the truth, “THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH” one day as he searched the Scriptures. Unfortunately, Luther came out of the Roman Catholic Church, but the Roman Catholic Church never came out of Martin Luther!!! Although some preachers attempt to credit Mr. Luther with sincere ignorance, the fact of the matter is that the Lord pronounced judgment upon the sincere religious workers in Matthew 7:21-23, because they had trusted in their own self-righteousness instead of doing the will of God, which is to believe on Jesus Christ (John 6:40).
Martin Luther (1483-1546) was a fraud, a heretic. Tragically, this man who has been dead for 466 years is still brainwashing people with his damnable heresies, leading them into Hellfire. Here are the words of one such deceived soul...
"...the central truths of Christianity, the most important of which, for Luther, was the doctrine of justification — God's act of declaring a sinner righteous — by faith alone through God's grace. He began to teach that salvation or redemption is a gift of God's grace, attainable only through faith in Jesus as the messiah."

Did Luther really believe that salvation was "only through faith in Jesus?" No, he did not, as I will prove to you. In Luther's Large Catechism he states:
"Moreover, that it is most solemnly and strictly commanded that we must be baptized or we cannot be saved..." [emphasis added]

How much more evidence do you need to know that Martin Luther was an imposter, a Modernist, and an unsaved man?
Martin Luther not only taught that Water Baptism could give a person eternal life, but he also taught that Water Baptism could save a person EVEN WITHOUT FAITH...
"Further, we say that we are not so much concerned to know whether the person baptized believes or NOT; for on that account Baptism does not become invalid...

BLASPHEMY!!! How can a lost sinner be saved without faith? No such damnable doctrine is taught in the Bible.
Tragically, the biggest false religion in the world, Catholicism, actually quotes Martin Luther in an attempt to justify their heresy of Baptismal Regeneration. The following is quoted from Catholic.com...
"The Christian belief that baptism is necessary for salvation is so unshakable that even the Protestant Martin Luther affirmed the necessity of baptism. He wrote: 'Baptism is no human plaything but is instituted by God himself. Moreover, it is solemnly and strictly commanded that we must be baptized or we shall not be saved. We are not to regard it as an indifferent matter, then, like putting on a new red coat. It is of the greatest importance that we regard baptism as excellent, glorious, and exalted' "(Large Catechism 4:6).
What irony? Here's a Catholic ministry quoting Martin Luther's own words to support their damnable heresy. I ask you... Why do most Christians today continue to honor Mr. Luther as a great man of faith, who clearly wasn't even saved? Luther taught that Water Baptism could save a person, even if no faith was present. This goes against even the plainest of Scripture...
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8,9).
"To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins" (Acts 10:43)."But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Romans 4:5).
Did Martin Luther ever read Mark 16:16? ...
"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED."
Martin Luther believed wholeheartedly in the necessity of water baptism as a prerequisite for salvation. In his Large Catechism, Luther wrote:
[I] affirm that Baptism is no human trifle, but that it was established by God Himself. Moreover, He earnestly and solemnly commanded that we must be baptized or we shall not be saved (1978, pp. 98-99). [emphasis added]

Mr. Luther taught works salvation and tragically died in his own self-righteousness without the blood of Jesus Christ!!!

So many people today ignorantly tout Martin Luther as the great reformer of the "faith only" movement; but, in reality, Luther was a heretic who fathered the Baptismal Regeneration movement. Luther is tragically burning in Hell. The damnable Martin Luther deception has caused Christians around the world to remain silent concerning the evils of the Lutheran religion. Lutheranism is of the Devil.
Just as the heretic, C.S. Lewis, who taught Baptismal and Sacramental Salvation, so did the unholy Martin Luther.
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils." —1st Timothy 4:1
