Luther Latin Quote of the Day

 

 

 

 

Pecca fortiter, sed fortius fide et gaude in Christo.  (Martin Luther)

Amen!  Boenhoffer’s commentary on that phrase is darkly humorous and true: “You are a sinner anyway, and there is nothing you can do about it!” Speaking of Luther, I really need to get Wingren’s Luther on Vocation

  1. In his letter to Melanchthon – August, 1521 – when dear Phillipp was in a bout of despair. You can find it on the web @ iclnet.org among other places. The whole letter is stellar, worth memorizing. I’ve actually used it in pastoral counseling – the person wanted me to print it up so he could hang it in his house!

    Blessings,

  2. The Wingren book is excellent! Gene Veith cribbed a lot of Wingren’s quotes of Luther in his book, “God at Work,” an excellent basic work on vocation.
