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)

Excellent Thoughts For This Sunday, Oculi.

Pastor Mason Beecroft has published on his blog the text of a public address he was invited to present as part of a series long offered by a church in Tulsa OK, where he pastors Grace Lutheran (LCMS).

He worthily follows in the footsteps of past presenter Dr Oswald Hoffman, the renowned 39-year voice of The Lutheran Hour. His thoughts on Luke 11:14-28, the Gospel reading for Oculi until the Great Whore Rome did away with it in the 1960s and some of us foolishly followed suit, are outstanding. And a Hat Tip to the outstanding blog of Pastor Paul McCain, Cyberbrethren, where I first saw this excellent presentation cited.

Please read Pastor Beecroft's inspiring presentation here.
