Law and Gospel

I would like to receive articles, sermons, or audio on Lutheran Law and Gospel. If something has blessed you and given you a better understanding please pass it along.

One Response to Law and Gospel

  1. Patrick says:

    I read this awhile ago…
    “Blessed is the man who knows the difference between grace and works, gospel and law. Very few do. The law says, “Do.” The gospel says, “Done!” That is the difference. Legalism always attempts to wear the mask of grace. But it always smells like works. The smell of the carcass is easily detected. Legalism will always enforce its claims, somewhere, with the promise of reward or the threat of punishment. It may talk about “love” and “faith”. But legalism must have its “stick and carrot.” At some point the legalist will either promise or threaten something, conditioned upon man’s obedience or disobedience. The gospel conditions everything on the Person and work of Christ alone!” -Don Fortner
