and razing Churches which were built over thousands of years that contained tons of treasures of the faithful (statues and so on) was not 'radical'. We Lutherans love icons. Icons allow us to see what the Gospel tells us. They are visual aides. I love pulpits with the 4 Evangelists as it reminds you they were real people.
One problem with Christianity is that it is detached from its history due to the fact people cannot readily 'see' the great figures in stain glass, statues and other icons.
May the LORD bless you and keep you
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you
May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace
