To: Knitting A Conundrum
I've commented on similar threads that the 1854 dogma of the Immaculate Conception is one which would have pleased Luther very much, as it places the the emphasis on God's grace ("a singular grace"), not the human response to grace; and links that grace to Christ's sacrifice ("in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the savior of the human race"). This teaching was being discussed in the 16th Century and was never condemned by Luther or his followers. I truly consider the dogma a very Lutheran statement.
