    “That we henceforth be no more children,

    tossed to and fro, and carried about with

    every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men,

    and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in

    wait to deceive;”

    The Bible, Ephesians 4:14

    Oh what a tangled web we weave,

    When first we practice to deceive!

    Sir Walter Scot

    DEDICATION

    This book is dedicated to the person who, with a

    desire to know the truth, will compare what I have written

    in these pages to the Bible, and take to heart the statements

    that are found in this book.

    More than that, I pray that the person who reads these pages

    will understand that eternal life is not found in a ritual, or a

    church; but, in a person. It is found in our Wonderful

    Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Who said,

    “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh

    unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

    Even more, I pray that the person who reads this

    book will have the courage to say, “I am tired of being

    deceived by a man who has been dead for 460 years. I

    believe that Jesus Christ died for me, period! Christ’s last

    words on the cross were, “It is finished...,” and because of

    that only, I know I have eternal life!”

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only

    begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should

    not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)”

    “These things have I written unto you that believe on

    the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye

    have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name

    of the Son of God.” (I John 5:13).

    ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

    I want to thank our faithful Sunday Night

    Congregation for their listening patience as I read and

    taught them each and every chapter of this book. When I

    asked them if they were getting bored, or thought the

    teaching was too strong; their comment was, “Give it to

    them, Pastor! They need to know!”

    I am deeply grateful to those Christians who have

    financially given to make the publication of this book

    possible. It is wonderful to see the love they have for those

    who Luther has so deceived, evidenced by their giving.

    Without them, this book would not be in print.

    "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the

    word of God.” (Romans 10:17).

    FOREWORD

    Or, An Answer To The Critics

    I have been criticized for giving the credit to Martin

    Luther for the statement on Page 174, Par. C. of Luther’s

    Small Catechism, where he states “...because infants, too,

    can believe.” My critic responded, “Martin Luther did not

    say that. That is only in the explanation of the Catechism.”

    I submit to you that Martin Luther did say that and he

    most assuredly believed that. He takes up the subject of

    Infant Baptism in his Large Catechism on Page 86, of my

    copy; and on Page 87, Par. 52, he states, “Further, we are

    not primarily concerned whether the baptized person

    believes or not, for in the latter case Baptism does not

    become invalid.” In Par. 53, he states, “...Baptism is valid,

    even though faith be lacking. He nails it down in Par. 55

    when he concludes,

    “As we said, even if infants did not believe;

    which, however is not the case, as we have

    proved-still their Baptism would be valid

    and no one should rebaptize them.”

    Thank you, Mr. Luther!

    I have two Catechisms from the Missouri Lutheran

    Synod. One says, Luther’s Small Catechism on the front;

    but, on the inside title page we find it states, “A Short

    Explanation of Dr. Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, A
