Have you ever heard (or thought) these things?
What about good works?
Doesn’t God command us to do certain things, like keeping the Ten Commandments or loving our neighbor as ourselves?
Isn’t the promise of sheer grace a little dangerous?
Won’t people get lazy if we tell them there is nothing they can do to save themselves? We have to do something, don’t we?
Luther addresses all of these questions in the Smalcald Articles, Part III, Article XIII: How One is Justified before God and Does Good Works.
Rev. Peter Ill, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Millstadt, IL, and Peter Slayton, Social Media Manager for the LCMS, join host Rev. Sean Smith for the conversation.
Pull out your Book of Concord and join a lively discussion of the Lutheran Confessions. Each week, host Rev. Sean Smith and a roundtable groups of guests take an in-depth look at passages from parts of the Book of Concord so you can have a deeper understanding of your Lutheran faith.
