Most people of this generation, even those who profess themselves Christian, are so fallen away in morals that even the debauched people who lived a hundred years ago would be ashamed of the many things people today enjoy. And this is exactly what the devil had planned from the start, to step by step lowering the standard of morality in the world through the media until, in fact, one cannot escape to sin mortally by watching it with the intention of enjoying oneself. Yes to watch ungodly media only for enjoyment or pleasure or for to waste time which could be used for Godas most people do, is mortally sinful. Not that it was an acceptable performance, everything tending towards sensuality is an abomination, but still it serves to prove how much the decline has come since then, when even the secular press deemed inappropriate what today would be looked upon as nothing.
I think most may not even realize where it comes from. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners.
We will commit sins while we are here, for this life is not a place where justice resides. We, however, says Peter 2 Peter 3: Do you think such an exalted Lamb paid merely a small price with a meager sacrifice for our sins?
Pray hard for you are quite a sinner. First, it is an indictment of who we are.
Luther is clearly saying to Melanchthon that we people are sinners and because of our fallenness, we will continue to sin until the second coming. Our sins are real; they are not unimportant nor minimal…they do matter. Secondly, we need to own our sin and understand it to be real, in order for grace to be real.
If our sin, however, is real, then we in fact need a grace that is real. Lastly, what is missed in not quoting the whole phrase Luther uses is the admonition to let our trust in Christ be stronger than the sins we commit.
Luther is telling Melanchthon and us that our trust in Christ is of first importance. Might as well not even try. We as Lutherans concentrate on Romans and not Galatians.
This is unhealthy, unscriptural, and unhelpful in living the Good News in the world. So then, as Lutherans, let us only quote the whole phrase now and use it in context to show that we are dependent on Christ.
Let us never use it again to try to prove that sinning is acceptable and endorsed by God. If there was no wrong-doing, then no forgiveness is needed. Sin Boldly is in fact not a freedom to flagrantly sin, but to wholly depend on Christ when we do sin. My favorite quotation of his on the topic: For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf.

It seems that only when I came to a full understanding of how I had fallen short of the glory of God was I able to appreciate the gift of salvation and look forward to eternal life.
My struggle with sin is not over but knowing and accepting that I continue to fight my flesh makes me seek God even more. Reply jpserrano August 5, at I agree that it is critical to acknowledge our sinful nature. It is the first steps to understanding why we need a Savior.
