Luther on Eternal Life

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

A quote this morning, not from Holy Scripture, but from the sainted Martin Luther:

“Now, it is true, as I have always taught, that God does desire righteous people who live and walk in holiness and without blame before the world. However, this will not and cannot make anyone a Christian in the sight of God, that is, it cannot produce or procure eternal life.”

Martin Luther
Luther’s Works – Volume 69
Sermons on the Gospel of Saint John, Chapter 17-20
Luther on John 17:3
