Luther – on Christian liberty: 1. A Christian is a perfectly free lord of all, subject to none 2. A Christian is a dutiful servant to all subject to all * Out of Love – just as Christ did * 1 Corinthians 9:13 (Paul’s ideas) External factors don’t produce anything because non-Christians can do it; such works produce hypocrites Internal things (meditation) doesn’t help at all One thing for righteousness and freedom; the most holy word of God, the gospel – the word of God helps our souls If the Son makes us free, he makes us free indeed The word is the gospel of God concerning his Son * For our soul – life and righteousness Justified by faith alone, if it could be justified by anything else, then we wouldn’t need the word – which would mean we wouldn’t need faith (“no one is righteous, not one”) Salvation needs – word of God, and the Word is separate from anything else The moment you have faith – you learn that all things are blameless; faith derived from absolute despair
