Will the Real Martin Luther Please Stand Up (just read him).

Martin Luther is perhaps the most popular figure of theological study, outside secondary literature on the life of Jesus Christ. As the foundational character of Protestantism, to control Luther is to control the reformation. For this reason, reconstructionist have done their best to create a Luther after their own theological image. Today it seems the Luther of faith governs the Luther of history seen with the Luther Renaissance and the Finnish School of interpretation. The former made Luther the German idealist and the later the product of Eastern Orthodoxy. Both camps removed Luther from his actual writings and the 17th c.e. confessional scholastics, who carried on his reform.

Nominalism and the Reformation

Luther found that by grace we are what we are in justification, declared right by an alien righteousness, that is God does not justify us because we are worthy, but by Christ who is supremely worthy. Jesus Christ hides our sin with his glory, he covers our disobedience by his obedience, and shadows our death with his death that the wrath of God can never find us. This is the gospel recovered in the Reformation.

Happy Reformation Day!

We commemorate Reformation Day on October 31, for on this day in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses outlining corruption in the Church to the door of the Wittenberg Church, sparking the Protestant Reformation. The Reformation recovered and clarified the great doctrines of grace and purified the Church from error.
