Father Of The Protestant Reformation

“My conscience is captive to the Word of God. To go against conscience is neither right nor safe. I cannot and I will not recant. Here I stand; I can do no other.” Luther’s last name has fallen off the wall above the main board in Waveney/Doury Road – the installation is about a decade old and replaced a South East Antrim UDA emblem (see Keresapa). Luther’s signature was also painted into the strained glass window of an old Martin Luther mural in the lower Shankill – see Here I Stand I Can Do No Other.

Martin Luther, Father of the Protestant Reformation, 1483-1546. “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness – Romans 10:10”

“Martin Luther was a German priest and theologian, a man of faith and conscience he protested against the corrupt man-made teachings within the Roman Catholic Church and questioned the authority of both Pope and priests. Luther’s writings inspired the Protestant Reformation and helped establish the Protestant Church worldwide. Luther refused to retract his writing at the demand of the Pope. Luther’s call to the people was to return to the teachings of Jesus Christ, to protest and reform away from man made teaching back to the authority of Biblical truth. SOLA FIDE – FAITH ALONE was Luther’s call to the common man, that by faith alone we access salvation. FAITH ALONE in CHRIST ALONE. Martin Luther stood for truth, one voice that helped create freedom, inspiring countless millions to seek and find redemption. When the heart is right one voice can make a difference, we can never underestimate the power of truth in the heart, in the mind, and it’s [sic] effect within our community. We must continue to maintain this freedom.”
