Disputation of Doctor Martin Luther

on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences

Out of love for the truth and the desire to bring it to light, the following propositions will be discussed at Wittenberg, under the presidency of the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Master of Arts and of Sacred Theology, and Lecturer in Ordinary on the same at that place. Wherefore he requests that those who are unable to be present and debate orally with us, may do so by letter.

Reformation (observed)

95 Theses; John 8:31-36

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

“Our Lord and Master Jesus Christ, when He said, ‘Repent,’ willed that the whole life of believers should be repentance.”

With those words, many believe the Reformation of the 16th century began. For that is the first of the Ninety-Five Theses on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences. These theses, far from a confessional document—as we otherwise have contained for us in the Book of Concord—were meant to be the framework of a scholarly debate intended to expose the pious fraud being sold to the ordinary Christians.

Hmmmm...

There’s about an inch of heavy, wet snow on the ground; snow still falling, too. The power is out. Called IREA to report the outage, and they are aware of the outage which is affecting a pretty wide area. One inch and this is what happens? Things do not look good for the winter. I hope for their sake someone slid off the road and knocked down a pole, though not for the driver’s sake.
