There were a lot of disputes during the Reformation, but the Lutherans only asked for a few things to maintain unity: the mass in the vernacular, communion in both kinds, and married priests.
They’re two for three so far, and on theological disputes they seem to be winning as well.
A while ago our deacon preached about the physical presence of Christ in the Eucharist (which is a Lutheran position), and today our priest told us that Christians are “at the same time righteous and a sinner” (Simul justus et peccator in the Reformation lingo).
How much longer until Brother Martin wins entirely? He seems to have an inordinate influence from the grave.
