Veith - 973: Conflict to Communion | Darkness Before Dawn (DVD)Walter Veith
In recent times, Lutherans have apologized for their uncharitable attitude toward Roman Catholicism. Was the Protestant Reformation an accident based on Luther’s ignorance about Roman Catholicism? Is Protestantism an action group that forgot to dissolve itself, as some have said? Has the time come to bury the hatchet, lay aside all doctrinal differences, and unite as one?
In 2017, exactly 500 years after the start of the Protestant Reformation, leaders of the Lutheran and Roman Catholic churches signed the agreement, From Conflict to Communion. This represents an astonishing change in attitude of the two parties toward each other. Five hundred years ago, Lutherans and other Protestants gave their lives defending Biblical truths against Rome’s errors. What has made it possible for Protestant churches to come together with the Roman Catholic Church now? Walter Veith looks at the document and examines some of the points Lutherans and Catholics have agreed upon. These include transubstantiation, veneration of the host, ordination of pastors, differentiation between clergy and laity, and the primacy of the Pope.
When the Jews rejected Christ, saying, “We have no king but Caesar” they brought a curse upon themselves and Jerusalem was destroyed. Has Protestantism rejected King Jesus and accepted another Roman king in His place? Is history about to be repeated?
