Hi meekerdb Just because you can prove something, doesn't mean that it's true. It's only true if it corresponds to reality.
Yes, Luther hated the jews. It's always a bit of an embarassment. He was smart, but he wasn't holy. Lutherans don't believe that men can become saints anyway. Romans 3:10 "As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one." And I am a prime example of that.

Can you give any reason to believe that? That's why we Lutherans rely first on faith (trust in God). Second on the Bible. So did Martin Luther rely on faith or the bible when he wrote, ""What shall we do with...the Jews?...set fire to their synagogues or schools and bury and cover with dirt whatever will not burn, so that no man will ever again see a stone or cinder of them."
