Interesting Article on Luther and Calvin

I found this through Pontifications. The gist if the article is that the "Reformed" (as defined by Lutherans, i.e. Not EO, not RC, not Lutheran, but Chalcedonian Christians) "faith" as a reflection on the point in time at which one was saved, and then going on to prove that one is really saved. This is defined as the Protestant view. Lutheran faith, however, is a reflection on the promises of God, and that since God does not and cannot lie, we believe the promises and so we are justified by faith.

Cary, the author of the article (or I should say the speaker) goes on to say that the Book of Concord is more protestant than Luther. I am not sure I agree, but it is very interesting none the less. Check it out.
