    WHERE WAS IT MOST POPULAR?
    Germany. Mostly due to the fact that it originated from there. By the late 1500s, Lutheranism had spread through all of Europe speedily. So one may say that Europe, as a whole, is where Lutheranism was most popular.

    The Missouri synod (LCMS), formed in 1847 by German immigrants, has over 2.5 million members and its headquarters can be found in St.Louis, Missouri. The Missouri synod's founders based many of its beliefs on the famous writing "The Book of Concord".
    The Evangelical synod (ELCA), formed in 1988 with the union of three other large Lutheran sects, is the largest denomination of Lutheranism with 4.5 million members. Its headquarters can be found in Chicago, Illinois.
    WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EARLY CALVINISTS AND LUTHERANS?
    Both religions were and are similar in many ways because John Calvin was influenced by the beliefs of Martin Luther. Calvin basically followed Luther’s lead in reforming the Catholic Church.
    John Calvin (July 10, 1509 – May 27, 1564)
    Martin Luther(November 10, 1483–February 18, 1546)
    Calvinism emphasizes the doctrine of fate and destiny. They believe that God extends grace and grants salvation only to the chosen, and He already knows whether you are going to Hell or Heaven. Calvinists also stress the literal truth of the Bible. They preach that the church is a Christian community in which Christ is head and all members are equal under him. They differ with the Catholic belief of a church hierarchy and connecting with God through the Pope and Archbishops. Lutheranism on the other hand believes in redemption and forgiveness. They also differ with their beliefs of depravity; Lutherans believe all are born with sin while Calvinists don’t. Lutherans also believe that Christ died for all and Christ has irresistible grace. Calvinists also have opposing beliefs with these principles. These are jujst a few of the differences between Calvinists and Lutherans.

    *Additional/Fun Facts*
    The Protestant Reformation was a Christian reform movement in Europe. Many believe and argue that the Reformation began with Martin Luther's 95 Theses.

    Popular among the southern states because after the Civil Rights Movement, many southerners wanted baptisms, and many African Americans were in the south at the time
    Further, since most of the slavery was in the south, more African Americans were in the south
    The reason Baptists are so popular among African Americans is during slavery, the African Americans would go to baptist churches to pray, have fun, and talk about the rough times.
