Theology of the Cross vs. Theology of Glory – Part 4

Part 4 of a 7 part series with Pastor Tom Baker discussing the Heidelberg Disputation, Luther’s defense of his views on salvation (Theology of the Cross vs. Theology of Glory). Pastor Baker covers theses 13 – 16 of the Heidelberg Disputation.

13 – Free will, after the fall, exists in name only, and as long as it does what it is able to do, it commits a mortal sin.
14 – Free will, after the fall, has power to do good only in a passive capacity, but it can do evil in an active capacity.
15 – Nor could the free will endure in a state of innocence, much less do good, in an active capacity, but only in its passive capacity.
16 – The person who believes that he can obtain grace by doing what is in him adds sin to sin so that he becomes doubly guilty.

Theology of the Cross vs. Theology of Glory – Part 3

Part 3 of a 7 part series with Pastor Tom Baker discussing the Heidelberg Disputation, Luther’s defense of his views on salvation (Theology of the Cross vs. Theology of Glory). Pastor Baker covers theses 7 – 12 of the Heidelberg Disputation.

7 – The works of the righteous would be mortal sins if they would not be feared as mortal sins by the righteous themselves out of pious fear of God.
8 – By so much more are the works of man mortal sins when they are done without fear and in unadulterated evil self-security.
9 – To say that works without Christ are dead, but not mortal, appears to constitute a perilous surrender of the fear of God.
10 – Indeed, it is very difficult to see how a work can be dead and at the same time not a harmful and mortal sin.
11 – Arrogance cannot be avoided or true hope be present unless the judgment of condemnation is feared in every work.
12 – In the sight of God sins are then truly venial when they are feared by men to be mortal.

Theology of the Cross vs. Theology of Glory – Part 2

Part 2 of a 7 part series with Pastor Tom Baker discussing the Heidelberg Disputation, Luther’s defense of his views on salvation (Theology of the Cross vs. Theology of Glory). Pastor Baker covers theses 2 – 6 of the Heidelberg Disputation.

2 – Much less can human works which are done over and over again with the aid of natural precepts, so to speak, lead to that end.
3 – Although the works of man always appear attractive and good, they are nevertheless likely to be mortal sins.
4 – Although the works of God always seem unattractive and appear evil, they are nevertheless really eternal merits.
5 – The works of men are thus not moral sins (we speak of works which are apparently good), as though they were crimes.
6 – The works of God (we speak of those which he does through man) are thus not merits, as though they were sinless.

Episode Dump

I uploaded the rest of the Historic Liturgy series, but I don’t think I can keep this kind of pace. I’m hoping to get at least 3 episodes up a week. I’m going with my family to the snow tomorrow so I won’t be putting up an episode.

The next episode will be one with Albert Mohler. My brother requested something with Dr. Mohler so I’m looking for a good episode. Then I’ll start a series with John Warrick Montgomery on “Testing the Truth Claims of Christianity.”

Edit: Oops, got ahead of myself and started the Theology of the Cross vs. Theology of Glory series with Pastor Tom Baker. JWM will be next, I promise.
