If we are not the Church, where, I pray, is the Church? Albert, Count of Mansfeld, was the first to take the fieid, He was joined, with characteristic spirit and gallantry, by Philip, Landgrave of Hesse, who was soon followed by John, Elector of Saxony, and Henry, Duke of Brunswick, who all joined their forces to oppose the rebel boors. The initiation of polygamy in the city, while justified by references to the Old Testament, was a response to problems arising from a shortage of men, many of whom had fled the city.

Disenchanted from a spell that had kept them dubiously poised between the mass and the Gospel, they now saw where they stood, and, shutting their ears to Mary's soft words, they resolved to follow the policy alike demanded by their duty and their safety. Consider the writings of Luther, Calvin, Zwingli and other reformers which are filled with vulgarities, calumnies, insults, detraction and ridicule. The collection of books called "the Bible" is not a methodical code of faith and morals; if it be separated from the stream of tradition which asserts its Divine inspiration, it has no special authority, and, in the hands of private interpreters, its meaning is easily twisted to suit every private mind.

She’s not exactly wrong about God’s love, but, in Schori’s happy soteriology, such love demands from us no personal ­reformation, no individual guilt, no particular penance, and no precise dogma. The police (the STASI) recruited members of the protestant Churches. His theological knowledge was thus extended and ripened. At the very least there is a live-and-let-live approach.

We trace our roots to the writings of the 16th century theologian John Calvin, making us part of the Reformed tradition of Protestantism.
