THE CHURCH


 

 

THE REFORMATION WAS NOT A REACTION TO A CORRUPT CHURCH, IT WAS THE CONSEQUENCE

The Reformation started by Martin Luther, at a time the Church was filled with ignorance, legends, superstitions, corruption among the clergy and disunity, was not meant to solve the problems of the Church, though that was Luther's intention.  It made matters worse.  The division among men increased.  The reformation was focused on what we stand today, a civilization based on good earthly life, possessed of great powers to control the surroundings and even nature.  And yet never was man ever closer to self-destruction. 

The Reformation was not aimed at reforming the Church; it was geared towards total self-destruction.  It was the finale of a Church that was, for many years earlier, Protestant at heart.  With the Reformation, a large portion of the Catholic Church merely declared itself divorced from the main Church.
