Excerpt:

In every revival of the gospel, some undo by overdoing. To Luther’s horror, his friend, John Agricola, taught that Christians are in every sense free from the Ten Commandments.  John wrongly thought that belief in justification by faith overturned the need for law.

Excerpt:

Chapter 15 of Romans continues the theme of Chapter 14 and invokes the heaviest of spiritual artillery in the war against selfishness and conceit. Paul looks to the example of Christ as a supreme motivation for a life permeated with unselfish love.

Excerpt:

The list of Paul’s Roman friends found in the last chapter of this letter reminds us that the names of all believers are written in heaven, and that one day “the roll will be called up yonder.” Here, we have a preintimation of the calling of the…

Excerpt:

Romans 2: 13 has been puzzling to many when it declares that the doers of the law are justified. What Paul is saying is not a contradiction to his conclusions in R…

Excerpt:

We have in the first two verses what Bishop Anders Nygren calls “the basic rule of Paul’s ethics.” Having received the mercy of God, our lives are transformed. This is ever Paul’s approach to morality. “Therefore..

Excerpt:

Paul would have loved the later dictum of Augustine: “In essentials, unity; in nonessentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” Having dealt with the essentials in his earlier chapters, Paul now comes to the nonessentials, which can often be made to loom too large and destroy the peace of Christians, individually and in community.

Excerpt:
