Seminary Ramblings

Updates from life at seminary

If you think that the mercy of the Lord has not been given its due by showing how He justifies us through His own righteousness and how he did not shun marriage with sinners, you must realize that He goes even further. He makes our sins His own. Just as the Christian is just through the righteousness of Christ, so Christ is unrighteous and sinful through the guilt of the Christian. Whereas the Jew would say “blasphemy” and the Greek “madness” the believer says, “You are right.”

-Johann von Staupitz, December 1516
