The Anabaptists and the "Iconoclasts" revealed the extremest possibilities of the principles advocated by Luther, while in the Peasants' War the most oppressed elements of German society put into practice the doctrine of the reformer. These executions did not destroy the Protestant movement. The tradition of revivalism in the South, and in Georgia in particular, traces its roots to what some historians call the Great Awakening. Since GOD is one, with only one truth and with only one Holy Spirit, how could that one Spirit of truth be prompting those who have contradicting viewpoints?

Huss was burned for heresy in 1415, about a century before Luther's stand in Wittenberg.
