church, to its shame, was not reformed, Christian Theology
was and hearkened back to original Biblical Christian
practice, where God reigned supreme, not the Pope or any
other human being.

Luther was devout, as the record shows, and that led him
out of Catholicism, although it was not his intent. His
intent was to lead the church to correct itself. The church
failed. Tradition trumped God and God's Word.

Game. Set. Match.

And to this day, all churches who get corrupted continue
to fail. Look around. They're everywhere and they are,
of course, not all Roman Catholic.

At the same time there are many smaller congregations
across this country growing rapidly who are preaching
Bible Truths, not denominational truths, and people
seeking God, seeking the truth, are listening, and some
even believing.

There will always be a remnant of those whom God protects,
and who help others hear His Word, and it is in hearing
God's Word that people have faith; nothing else does
the job.

            It created a reformed theology, but as to whether or not it would be its "original" state... There was a bit of confusion amongst the apostles and early Christians about exactly what that was. Amadeus
