Morgendämmerung, oder, Wie man mit dem Hammer theologirt.
Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit id es semper esse puerum.
Orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano.
Homo sum humani nihil a me alienum puto.
Semper idem sed non eodem modo.


Verbum domini manet in aeternum. The word of the Lord endures forever.
1 Peter 1:24-25, quoting Isaiah 40:6,8. Motto of the Lutheran Reformation.

Fayth onely justifieth before God. Robert Barnes, DD The Supplication, fourth essay. London: Daye, 1572.

Lord if Thou straightly mark our iniquity, who is able to abide Thy judgement? Wherefore I trust in no work that I ever did, but only in the death of Jesus Christ. I do not doubt, but through Him to inherit the kingdom of heaven. Robert Barnes, DD, before he was burnt alive for "heresy", 30 July 1540.

What is Luther? The doctrine is not mine, nor have I been crucified for anyone. Martin Luther, Dr. theol. (1522)

"The Most Dangerous Thing in the World"

There are a number of excellent Reformation Sunday sermons in the blogs by pastors on the sidebar, and I'm tempted to come up with sort of a mini-carnival to list them.

I came across a post entitled "The Most Dangerous Thing in the World" on a blog I visit sometimes that isn't on the sidebar -- and after reading this, maybe it should be! While not specifically a Reformation Sunday post, it is entirely about what Reformation is. Since there seems to be some confusion these days not just about what Reformation is but even what church is, I cannot say enough for the clarity this post contributes.
