Was The Son Of God A Sinner?

BY MARTIN LUTHER

Paul does not say that Christ was made a curse for Himself. The accent is on the two words “for us.” Christ is personally innocent. Personally, He did not deserve to be hanged for any crime of His own doing. But because Christ took the place of others who were sinners, He was hanged like any other transgressor.

We Do Not Mingle Law and Grace

BY MARTIN LUTHER

To give a short definition of a Christian: A Christian is not somebody who chalks sin, because of his faith in Christ. This doctrine brings comfort to consciences in serious trouble. When a person is a Christian he is above Law and sin. When the Law accuses him, and sin wants to drive the wits out of him, a Christian looks to Christ.

Who Puts His Hand to the Plow?

BY DANIEL EMERY PRICE

“No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” These are the words of Jesus to a man who promised to follow him after saying good-bye to his family in Luke 9:62. Tough stuff. I admit this text used to trouble me.
