Lessons From History

A big problem of Christendom is the failure to remember the past generations and the price that was paid by our forefathers for our Gospel liberties. This section supplies brief biographical sketches of some of the major figures in Protestantism.

Pope Leo’s Bull Arrives In Wittenberg
by Dr Clive Gillis, 2/8/2010
As the bull disseminated Luther penned The Babylonish Captivity of the Church. “I denied that the Papacy was of Divine origin, but I granted that it was of human right. Now ... I know that the Papacy is none other than the kingdom of Babylon ... I therefore beseech all my friends and all the booksellers to burn the books that I have written on this subject, and to substitute this; one proposition in their place: The Papacy is a general chase led by the Roman bishop to catch and destroy souls.”

Pope Leo’s Bull Condemns Luther
by Dr Clive Gillis, 2/2/2010
When Dr. Eck left the scene of the Leipzig disputation he at once set off for Rome. And with what aim? He had crossed the Alps to solicit the Pope’s help against the man whom he boasted having vanquished. Cardinal Cajetan had preceded him. Both sought revenge. But The Roman Curia was apathetic. How could the insignificant monk of Wittenberg shake the Pontiff’s throne? Some were concerned because excommunication required the unpredictable civil powers to enforce it. Others were secretly appalled at the depths to which Rome had sunk and felt Luther’s voice could be tolerated. Yet others felt sure that honours and preferments in the end would silence him. Many however were for an instant anathema.
Protestantism vs. The Holy Roman Empire, The Monk And The Monarch
by Dr Clive Gillis, 1/7/2010
AMONG the actors that now begin to crowd the stage there are two who tower conspicuously above the others, and fix the gaze of all eyes. The one wears a frock of serge, the other is clad in an imperial mantle. The Reformation is utterly dwarfed in the presence of a colossal Empire. Luther’s friends were falling away, or growing timid. “If God do not help us, we shall all perish,” exclaimed Melancthon. Even Luther himself was made at times to know depression.
The Leipzig Disputation
by Dr Clive Gillis, 1/4/2010
We re-enter Pleisenberg hall in central Leipzig. Eck’s stentorian voice and animated gestures as he repudiates reformed doctrine at the one end of the hall contrasts with the fight for salvation by grace — grace to the entire exclusion of human merit at the other. The controversy came to rage around this one point — Has the human will the power to choose and to do what is spiritually good? This, they said, was the whole controversy between Romanism and Protestantism.
