Martin Luther Taught That Water
...says Baptism Valid Even Without Faith!
By David J. Stewart | October 2014
Martin Luther (1483-1546) was a fraud, a heretic. Tragically, this man who has been dead for 468 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."
SOURCE: Wriedt, Markus. "Luther's Theology," in The Cambridge Companion to Luther. New York: Cambridge University Press, 2003, 88–94.
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]

When did Luther say this? It is alleged that Mr. Luther was saved in the year 1517, but it was 12 years later in 1529 that he wrote this blasphemous catechism, grossly perverting the Gospel. Galatians 1:8, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Luther, no matter how sincere, is accursed. Woe unto the foolish religious leaders today who exalt Martin Luther as a hero of the Christian faith!
How much more evidence do you need to know that Martin Luther was an imposter, a Modernist and an unsaved man? I have given books to Independent Fundamental Baptist pastors exposing Martin Luther, but they couldn't have cared less. I've even been told to stop passing out such materials because they were called “divisive” in the church. That was at the apostate Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. What is wrong with pastors today? I'll tell you what's wrong, they love mammon and not God. They are in the religious business and do not care about doctrinal integrity and exposing the modern corrupt Bible versions. Harvest is a big promoter of the corrupt modern Bible perversions, following the stench of apostasy at Bob Jones University, who openly deny the verbal inspiration of our beloved King James Bible. They are enemies of the inspired Word of God, helping to spread Satan's corruptible seed. Truly, it is the battle of the ages!
Satan loves new-evangelical Baptist pastors! God deliver America from the Bob Jones University crowd! Pastors today don't preach anymore. They avoid the subject of Hell. Wisdom is one of their favorite topics, but no preacher is wise who doesn't regularly warn people about the fires of Hell, judgment and eternal punishment. No preacher is wise who doesn't warn people about Satan's corrupted seed. Most churches don't even teach soul-winning, instead making music and education their primary focus. It's a crying shame!
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."
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. Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. If you think that you were saved by the act of water baptism, then you have never been born-again. It's not too late. Please repent of your false religion and believe the Gospel to be saved. END
