Martin Luther Taught Water Baptism Saves
...says Baptism Valid Even Without Faith!

By David J. Stewart

Martin Luther (1483-1546) was a fraud, a heretic.  Tragically, this man who has been dead for 466 years is still brainwashing people with his damnable heresies, leading them into Hellfire. 

Here are the words of one such deceived soul...

"...the central truths of Christianity, the most important of which, for Luther, was the doctrine of justification God's act of declaring a sinner righteous by faith alone through God's grace. He began to teach that salvation or redemption is a gift of God's grace, attainable only through faith in Jesus as the messiah."

Did Luther really believe that salvation was "only through faith in Jesus?"  No, he did not, as I will prove to you.  In Luther's Large Catechism he states:

"Moreover, that it is most solemnly and strictly commanded that we must be baptized or we cannot be saved..." [emphasis added]

How much more evidence do you need to know that Martin Luther was an imposter, a Modernist, and an unsaved man? 

Martin Luther not only taught that Water Baptism could give a person eternal life, he also taught that Water Baptism could save a person, EVEN WITHOUT FAITH...

"Further, we say that we are not so much concerned to know whether the person baptized believes or NOT; for on that account Baptism does not become invalid...

BLASPHEMY!!!  How can a lost sinner be saved without faith?   No such damnable doctrine is taught in the Bible. 

Tragically, the biggest false religion in the world, Catholicism, actually quotes Martin Luther in an attempt to justify their heresy of Baptismal Regeneration.  The following is quoted from Catholic.com...

"The Christian belief that baptism is necessary for salvation is so unshakable that even the Protestant Martin Luther affirmed the necessity of baptism. He wrote: 'Baptism is no human plaything but is instituted by God himself. Moreover, it is solemnly and strictly commanded that we must be baptized or we shall not be saved. We are not to regard it as an indifferent matter, then, like putting on a new red coat. It is of the greatest importance that we regard baptism as excellent, glorious, and exalted' "(Large Catechism 4:6).

What irony? Here's a Catholic ministry quoting Martin Luther's own words to support their damnable heresy. I ask you... Why do most Christians today continue to honor Mr. Luther as a great man of faith, who clearly wasn't even saved. Luther taught that Water Baptism could save a person, even if no faith was present. This goes against even the plainest of Scripture...

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8,9). 

"To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins" (Acts 10:43).

"But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Romans 4:5).

Did Martin Luther never read mark 16:16? ...

"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED."


Conclusion

Mr. Luther is a liar of liars, who is deceiving people nearly 500 years later with his teachings. I am awestruck how people can choose the good they want to believe about a person; while simultaneously disregarding the most hideous, unbiblical, and evil things about that same person. This is why Adolf Hitler (1938), Joseph Stalin (1942), and President George W. Bush (2000/2004) have all been honored by TIME magazine (a known Communist organization).

Likewise, Martin Luther is responsible for leading untold hundreds-of-millions of people into the Lake of Fire. Ignorant and foolish people continue to praise Luther today. There is much information available exposing Martin Luther for the loser that he was in God's eyes.
