WHO ARE THE LUTHERANS?
Lutherans are sinners who are saved by the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ.
In Luther’s time in which he lived, the church had obscured the Gospel through its many regulations, and monetary considerations. All of these were proclaimed by the church in Luther’s day to help the individual gain God’s favor and even purchase Heaven itself.
Luther tried everything that the church dictated and even went above and beyond what was required, yet he found no peace and assurance. Why? Because Luther discovered that a person could never do enough to be certain they had pleased God, or had done enough to be certain of their salvation.
Due to Luther’s angst, Luther’s superior, put this young Roman Catholic monk to work teaching at the University of Wittenberg in hopes that it would get his mind off the matter. It was there that Luther discovered from the pages of the Holy Bible the Gospel of free salvation, by God’s grace alone through faith alone. This doctrine of the Gospel sparked the Reformation and the Lutherans returned to the teachings of the Apostles as found in Scripture.
