Are Lutherans Really First Century Catholics?

So fellow Chicago-land pastor, Jonathan Fisk posted this video today. In it he argues that Lutherans aren’t protestants in the same way that most people think about it. He essentially says that they are Catholics who fought to keep believing the “Gospel” instead of submitting to the Pope, who Jonathan believes subverted the Gospel by burying it under lots of false doctrines and such…

As any regular reader of this blog knows, Catholics and Lutherans are two of the groups of Christians I love the most. In fact most of my readers are either Catholics or Lutherans. I would like to start a discussion about this video if possible in the comments section below.

  1. What does Pastor Fisk get right?
  2. Is there anything factually wrong about the video?
  3. What might you add to the conversation?
Let me know what you think!
