The spirit of Martin Luther or the spirit of Yehovah?

Speaker: Apostle Ernie

Have you noticed how we Christians tend to worship humans instead of Christ? Every Christian is guilty of doing this in one way or the other when we put man's opinions of the Bible above the Bible itself. Catholics do this when they put the popes and the church tradition above the Bible. Protestants do this when they put Martin Luther's writings and opinions, above the Bible even though the falsely claim to be sola scriptura (scripture alone). Is it any wonder Christians sometimes struggle in their faith walks, trying to follow a human being instead of following Christ? What would happen if we became true Bible-believing Christians allowing the Bible to speak for itself? We would see the Bible come alive, and we would get to know Yehovah, the God of the Bible.

Martin Luther is known as the one who freed us from the "shackles" of the catholic church. He is credited as the one who "rediscovered" the doctrine of salvation by grace through faith alone. And because of him, we protestants believe in sola scriptura (scripture alone) and sola fide (faith alone).....
