There is a helpful article on Martin Luther’s rather poisonous anti-semitism in “The Theologian” (Click Here),

To people – like me – who see him as a hero this is a big embarrassment. It is even moreMartin Luther embarrassing than his strident and unchristian language in relation to the Anabaptists (to whom we owe so much).

ML definitely got a lot more ratty as he got older. I note that John Wesley lived long enough to embed his perfectionism and Arminianism deep into the Evangelical Movement. I sometimes wonder if they both lived a couple of decades too long.

I can detect the same tendencies in myself. Will someone say the same about me I wonder?
