I guess He didn’t read Philippians 2:11-13 and Eph. 2:10 among all the other teachings of JESUS on works.

God is his judge now. We are either saved by God’s grace alone, or we aren’t. It is as simple as that.

It would be akin to heresy for one Pope to say that another Pope had been fallible, so I don’t foresee Luther ever being “rehabilitated” by the Roman Church. The Bishops of Rome have always had too high an opinion of themselves and their own worth.

Then again, Luther didn’t need their approval then, and he certainly doesn’t need it now.

Reporters don’t understand the Church, what it’s for, or how it works, but they have a lot of images about it. So they base their reporting on how some suggested fact plays off their images.

In this particular case we have a mixture of the “pope as hammer of heretics” image, the “church updates itself” image, and the “loopy clergyman” image. The last is most commonly applied to Anglican clergyman, but it really applies to all of them. It’s an aspect of the “weird people doing weird things” image.
