Considering Luther's book, the bondage of the will it would seem so. But to my understanding the Ordo Salutis is different.

Or, is it safe to say Luther and Calvin only disagreed on the sacraments?

Thoughts?
 
I love Martin Luther. I've read much of his works and learned that most of the time he acted consistently with his beliefs. I especially enjoyed his letters for spiritual counsel.

It would be wrong not to consider his lingering devotion to Mary.

He also had an affinity for potty mouth.

I would characterize his beliefs in the DOG as Calvin lite!

:devilish:

I think everyone's concept of the Ordo Salutus is a little weird since we come at it from a human perspective. Being temporal is one of the reasons we will never fully grasp the astounding completeness of God. But I digress.

I'm fairly certain that if you put all the "reformed" folk of the first hundred years in the same room with the ability to understand one another there would be sharp disagreement.

Calvin had a potty mouth as well, Katarina. At least according to our standards. But then So did Paul.

Why did I step into this discussion again? Hmmm...Oh! Why do you ask, Carbon?
