Luther: The Rest of the Story, Part I: Man Between God and the Devil
Martin Luther was the most important figure of the Protestant Reformation. In this series of three talks I discuss Luther's life and experiences leading up to his break with the Catholic Church, and then the two key doctrines that came out of the Reformation: Scripture as the Christian's sole and sufficient infallible rule of faith and practice (sola scriptura) and justification by faith alone (sola fide). Catholics have never insisted that everything Luther said in his critique of the Church at the time was wrong. What Catholics have insisted, however, is that the solutions Luther gave, summarized in these two key Reformation doctrines, are unbiblical and have been a disaster for the Church. How so? I invite you to listen and learn. In this first talk, we focus on Luther's family background, his decision to enter the Augustinian monastery, his spiritual struggle to find peace with God, and his discovery of the doctrine of justification by faith alone.
