Mondays with Marty

In this week's installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, I offer two quotes related to the Reformation in light of Reformation Day approaching this Sunday::
"67. I have set Christ and the Pope against each other, and as a result have put myself between the door and the hinge. If I should be brought down, Christ will certainly raise me up again" (p. 392-93)
"72. The entire foundation of the papacy consists of works, the Anabaptist is based upon suffering, the true Christian, however, neither on the one or other, but always on faith alone." (p. 393)

DISCLAIMER: The views reflected in this quote do not necessarily reflect those of the author of this blog. This quote is shared in the interest of edification, education, and/or humor.

That second quote is really interesting to me. Why would Martin Luther feel that Anabaptists were based on suffering?

We just heard a sermon on the "Solas". Very interesting. I have actually never read the 95 (from which I assume you took these); maybe I should...?
