Was Martin Luther a heretic? He is widely respected ny evangelicals and fundamentalist alike. I also have a copy of the 2003 movie on version Martin Luther. But after examing some of his teaching one can only wonder if he truly preached the true gospel. He taught baptismal regeneration, in other words you must be baptized in order to be saved. He also taught that communion was a sacrament beacuse it imparts grace to the believer. Some have said that he was just leaving catholicism so he couldn't have figure all the wrong doctrines of the church. But Luther wanted to persecute the Anabaptist because they believe in believer's baptism. A doctrine Luther rejected, he also devoted himself to Mary teaching that she was sinless. My point is if anyone hold to these doctrines today we might think this person is outside of orthodoxy. How should think of Martin Luther? Was He a heretic? Did he added works to the gospel of grace by teaching baptismal regeneration?
