An appalling sentiment from Luther.
How is that appealing? When I sin, it makes my life worse. It makes the lives of those around me worse. It grieves my Lord and Saviour. How is that appealing?
Appalling != appealing.
Well that’s embarrassing. Missed another opportunity to be quiet. Sorry ’bout that.
Luther apparently didn’t stay in Romans 6:1-2 “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?”
