Could it possibly be more obvious
#14
I can't believe Catholics can intellectually countenance websites like the one cited in the original post. That the authors of "Luther, Exposing the Myth" * chose the most unattractive depiction of Martin Luther at the head of the page should have been a dead giveaway of the site's worth. The oversimplification in the "Christ taught"/""Luther taught" set-up should have raised alarms as well. The very least the website creators could have done was give a synopsis of the larger context's of Christ's and Luther's respective quotes.



* N.B.: Always avoid books, articles, websites and have "exposing," "the truth about," "the real X"; they likely to be trash scholarship.

But I don't know if the story is true. It was the first time I heard anything like that.

If I may quote Christopher Hitchens on this one, "The faithful love to circulate deathbed conversion stories."
