Luther on God’s Law

Extract from Luther on God’s Law – To read the full work, click “Download” below.

“After God had made all other creatures, He created man…with righteousness and true holiness after His image, having the Law of God written in their hearts (Genesis 1:26; Colossians 3:10; Ephesians 4:24; Romans 2:14-15)….   God gave to Adam a Law (Ecclesiastes 7:29)….

This Law, after his fall, continued to be a perfect rule of righteousness and…was delivered by

God upon Mount Sinai in Ten Commandments (James 1:25; 2:8-12; Romans 13:8-9)….  This Law [is] commonly called Moral…[and] doth for ever bind all, as well justified persons as others, to the obedience thereof (Ephesians 6:2 & First John 2:3-8)….   Neither doth Christ in the Gospel any way dissolve but much strengthen this obligation (Matthew 5:17-19 & Romans 3:31)…, the Spirit of Christ subduing and enabling the will of man to do that freely and cheerfully which the will of God revealed in the Law requireth to be done (Ezekiel 36:27 & Hebrews 8:10 & Jeremiah 31:33).”   1646-47 Westminster Confession of Faith, 4:2 & 19:1-7.
