You must not abandon the ship in a storm because you cannot control the winds. What you cannot turn to good, you must at least make as little bad as you can.

Fr. Vincent Serpa on the Chaos of Protestantism

Comments Off on Fr. Vincent Serpa on the Chaos of Protestantism

The Protestant Reformation resulted in the continuous division of churches over the interpretation of Scripture, each new denomination insisting on its own as authentic. But of course, since they all contradict each other, they can’t all be correct. The divisions continue to this day—thousands of them. If this is reformation, I’d hate to see chaos!

Martin Luther on his authority to add to Sacred Scripture to support his doctrine of Faith Alone

Comments Off on Martin Luther on his authority to add to Sacred Scripture to support his doctrine of Faith Alone

You tell me what a great fuss the Papists are making because the word “alone” (which Luther added) is not in the text of Paul (Romans 3:28). If your Papist makes such an unnecessary row about the word “alone”, say right out to him: “Dr. Martin Luther will have it so”, and I order it to be so, and my will is reason enough.I know very well that the word “alone” is not in the Latin or the Greek text…it shall remain in my New Testament. All the Popish donkeys will not get it out.
