[Martin] Luther was an Augustinian monk and [John] Calvin a devout Roman Catholic steeped in the teachings of Augustine. Incredibly, both of these leading “Reformers” admired and continued to follow Augustine until their deaths. It is even more incredible that evangelical leaders today hold Luther and Calvin (and Augustine) in such high regard. Augustine is celebrated as the greatest “saint” of the Roman Catholic Church, responsible for most of what Rome practices to this day. In his Institutes of the Christian Religion , Calvin quotes Augustine more than 400 times, often with the phrase, “by the authority of Augustine.”
Both Luther and Calvin taught that infant baptism (even if performed by an ungodly, unbelieving Catholic priest) brought forgiveness of sins and made one a child of God. That is why Lutherans and Calvinists despised, persecuted and even killed the Anabaptists who, having been truly born again through believing the gospel of Christ, were baptized as believers. While Lutherans and Calvinists, like Catholics, no longer burn at the stake, many of them still despise and persecute former members who are saved and baptized as believers, as you can testify. (…)
