It was recently pointed out to me that what Luther did in leading so many of the faithful into schism – that is, denying the Papacy IN SE, denying the Papacy in principle, denying the Primacy, Absolute Monarchy, and Universal Jurisdiction of the Roman Pontiff, Supernaturally graced with a negative protection guaranteeing infallibility (much like people in Trad Inc. are doing today – funny that) – was far worse than full apostasy or paganism, because the agony of eternal damnation is far worse for the Baptized. In founding a schism that brought people to Baptism, and then IMMEDIATELY put them in mortal sin, Luther didn’t merely lead people to hell, he led and leads them to the WORST hell, because the damned will know that they had, for no matter how short a time, the Snow White baptismal garment, which they then immediately rejected and tore off. THAT agony is the worst eternal torment.
Not long after, over my transom came a link to THIS, which details the dirty little secret of Luther’s exit from this mortal coil. Click over, read the whole thing, and save as a bookmark.
Yep. He hung himself.
NOT surprising in the least.
If you would like to see a small sampling of Luther’s obvious insanity and reprobation, which included BLASPHEMY (it ALWAYS eventually ends up in blasphemy – the cursing and narcissistic devaluing of God Himself), click HERE for a compendium I put together a few years ago.
How did Luther Die?
The official Protestant version narrates that the greatest architect of the Christian rupture died of a natural death on February 15, 1546, after a trip to Eisleben and suffering from angina pectoris; Was it really like this?
A contemporary German scholar, Dietrich Emme, offers a very different version in a review of events. In his book “Martin Luther, Seine Jugend und Studienzeit 1483-1505. Eine dokumentarische Darstelleng “ (“Martin Luther: Youth and Years of Study from 1483 to 1505. Bonn 1983”) points out that Luther committed suicide, and he is not alone in pointing this out.
Likewise, a Freudian psychoanalyst, M. Roland Dalbiez, in his study Luther’s Anguish , attributes him “… a very serious neurosis of anguish, so grave that one may wonder whether it has not been due to a border-state between neurosis on the one hand and “suicide raptus” on the other, a teleological anti-suicidal automatism”.
Indeed, Luther had suicidal tendencies, as it can be corroborated in his own “Tischreden” (“Table Talk”), where one of his conversations with Pastor Güben Leonhard Beyer, in 1551 is documented:
“He told us that when he was a prisoner the devil had wickedly tormented him and that he had laughed heartily when he (Luther) took a knife in his hand, saying:” Go ahead! Kill yourself! “(…). This has happened to me very often, so much as to put a knife in my hand … and what evil thoughts came to mind in this way, so evil that I could no longer pray “.
In 1606, Franciscan Heinrich Sedulius in his “Preaescriptiones adversus haereses”, narrates something analogous bringing up the valuable testimony of Ambrosio Kudtfeld, a witness and man of confidence of the “reformer” who, far from accounting a death from angina , says:
“On the night before his death, Martin Luther let himself be overcome by his habitual intemperance and in such excess that we were obliged to take him, completely drunk, and place him in his bed. Then, we retired to our bedroom, without sensing anything unpleasant! The next morning, we went back to our lord to help him get dressed, as usual. Then – oh, what a pain! – we saw our master Martin hanging from the bed and strangled miserably! His mouth was crooked, th right part of his face was black, his neck was red and deformed.”
Indeed, at that time raised beds supported by columns were used.
“In the face of this horrible spectacle, we felt great fear! We ran, without delay, to the princes, his guests of the day before, to announce to them the execrable end of Luther! They, full of terror like us, immediately promised us, with a thousand promises and the most solemn oaths, to observe, with respect to that event, an eternal silence. Then they ordered us to remove the rope from Luther’s hideous corpse, lay him on his bed, and then report to the people that “Master Luther” had suddenly abandoned this life!”
Maritain himself points out that Dr. De Coster, who examined Luther, explained that the deceased’s mouth was crooked with the face black and the neck red and deformed .
Likewise, Oratorian priest Bozio, in his book “De Signis Ecclesiae”, published in 1592 , points out that one of the reformer’s household indicated that his lord was found hanged from the columns of his bed; Dr. Géorges Claudin says the same: .
As Villa points out, “Luther, then, did not die a natural death, as has been falsely written in all the history books of Protestantism, but died as a suicidal, hanged from his bed after a splendid dinner, in which, as usual, he had drunk too much and was satisfied with food beyond all bounds!”.
