New 95 Theses - Christian and Jewish Relations

5.75

On Oct. 31, 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Thus started the Protestant Reformation. Luther was very friendly toward the Jewish people in the beginning, thinking that in their rejection of Roman Catholic Christianity they would accept Christ in the new Protestant Movement. However, after centuries of Christian persecution, slaughter, Crusades and Inquisition, the Jews simply were not interested in any brand of Christianity.
Late in life Luther became a hater of Jews and things Jewish. He wrote in vicious terms of the Jews: "All the blood kindred of Christ burn in hell, and they are rightly served..." The result of this new Christian hatred of the Jews led directly to the Holocaust. We are thankful that the Lutheran World Federation and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America have publicly repudiated and repented for Luther's anti-Semitism. It is our prayer that the whole body of Evangelical Christianity will do the same.
We now present a new 95 Theses to make up for what the Protestant and Evangelical Churches may lack in regards to the Jewish and Israel issue.
