Steven Paulson’s Bold Words

“Lutheranism is the history of a departure from Luther, but this is not a decline or decadence from a golden age…, instead it is a bald fear of the Gospel that lies at its core.  The same charges that were made of Paul resurfaced among the Lutherans: ‘Shall we sin the more that grace may abound?’ ‘Is the law to no avail?’ ‘Do I do nothing?’  Luther’s kind of preaching is a nuclear reactor–so much energy produced from so small a core–and yet the fear always hovers among those who are nearest that the thing will implode and destroy life rather than generate it.”
