Did Martin Luther Do More Harm than Good? - Le Donne
And yet, I am constantly learning more and more about Luther that deserves gratitude. Indeed, every pastor who loves his wife should thank God for Luther's insistence that clergy have the right to marry. One could argue that modern book culture was a product of sola scriptura. Is it almost impossible to measure the inspiration that Luther had on Martin Luther King Sr.; would there have been a Martin Luther King Jr. without this inspiration? And there was this thing about Church corruption that Luther had an issue with... but, most importantly, he almost single-handedly made it cool to be fat.
So this is an open-ended question: is the world better or worse for the life and works of Martin Luther?
