John Klassen (Professor Emeritus, Trinity Western University) described how Martin Luther emerged from a strict adolescence to become an ascetic monk in his search for a continual state of righteousness. Indulgences that had earlier provided a substitute for pilgrimages had become a comprehensive “pay-to-play” penitential system to fund church operations. The mystery of Christ’s sacrifice is how we are justified by our faithful response to God’s grace, not any particular good works. In the year that we celebrate 500 years of the Reformation, we still hear Luther’s words that “in the midst of death, we live!” [KH]
