This Day in History

1538 - Regarding the doctrine of purgatory, German Reformer Martin
Luther reported in a "Table Talk": 'God has placed two ways
before us in His Word: salvation by faith, damnation by
unbelief (Mark 16:16). He does not mention purgatory at all.
Nor is purgatory to be admitted, for it obscures the benefits
and grace of Christ.'
