Example text

While this great duel did not resolve the thorny question of the freedom of the will, it did illustrate the basic views on the nature of man and God held by most contemporaries in the West at that time. These views reached into the past and were to rise to great importance with the coming of the national, industrial, democratic state. Their relevance today contributes to the Erasmian renaissance. Luther’s part in the debate is the emphasis on Christianity as dogmatic religion. He wants to solve the issue theologically.

In it are passages where God is angry, grieved, indignant, furious; where he threatens and hates. Again in other places he has mercy, he regrets, he changes his intentions. This does not mean that such changes really take place in the nature of God. These are rather modes of expression, benefitting our weakmindedness and dullness. The same prudence should, I believe, adorn all who have taken up preaching the divine word. Some things can be noxious, because like wine for the feverish, they are not fitting.
