Martin Luther On Unity With Roman Catholics:

The negotiation about doctrinal agreement displeases me altogether, for this is utterly impossible unless the pope has his papacy abolished. Therefore avoid and flee those who seek the middle of the road. Think of me after I am dead and such middle-of-the-road men arise, for nothing good will come of it. There can be no compromise.


My dear pope, I will kiss your feet and acknowledge you as supreme bishop if you will worship my Christ and grant that through His death and resurrection, not through keeping your traditions, we have forgiveness of sins and life eternal.


If you will yield on this point, I shall not take away your crown and power; if not, I shall constantly cry out that you are the Antichrist, and I shall testify that your whole cult and religion are only a denial of God, but also the height of blasphemy against God and idolatry. (What Luther Says, II: 1019)


Soli Deo Gloria!

Wow.... "Anti-Christ"? Surely you don't believe this? Are we going to continue our debates, my brother, or have you given up.

The pope not only preaches another Gospel, which is no Gospel at all, but he also usurps the name of God by calling himself "holy father" a name reserved only for God, John 17:11

he also calls himself "head of the church" a title reserved only for Jesus Christ, therefore the pope reveals himself as Anti-Christ.

I wish to continue our debates as time allows, I will be in touch.
