Theology

Martin Luther was an born at Eisleben, 10 November, 1483; died at Eisleben, 18 February, 1546. He reformed the church by using the Bible as His basis insisting that the Bible is true and the only source needed and that one is saved by grace. He taught that there is one faith in His writing called, “One Faith and Coming to Christ” he said, “Whoever desires to seek another way, as the great multitudes venture to do by means of their own works, has already missed the right way; for Paul says to the Galatians: “If righteousness is through the Law,” that is, through the works of the Law, “then Christ died for naught” (Gal. 2:21).” He urged the church to realize that salvation does not come through the law but through Christ. His beliefs became so strong that it lead to a revival and led many churches to realize that they had strayed from the teachings of the Bible. The revival took its center stage when Martin Luther nailed a Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Church. And at the heart of the gospel, in Luther’s estimation, was the doctrine of justification by faith–the teaching that Christ’s own righteousness is imputed to those who believe, and on that ground alone, they are accepted by God.
