Martin Luther on the Sin-Slaved Will

This is my absolute opinion: he that will maintain that man’s free-will is able to do or work anything in spiritual cases be they never so small, denies Christ.

From his Table Talk, in the section on free-will.

(See also The Bondage of the Will.)

    thanks for the post and the links..

    I was looking for something from Luther and just hadn’t looked it up yet.

    Romans 9:18-21 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

    In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen

    • B Treece says:

      Amen to Romans 9:18-21 (along with the Law, Prophets, Writings, Gospels, Epistles, and Revelation) making that point crystal clear.

      Thanks for dropping by, Timothy.
