In Which I Respond to Joel’s 1871 Citation of a Papist in Support of a False Theological Claim

Blah.  Some old papist saying so doesn’t make it so.  Scripture and sound reason- those are the only authentic foundations for theological assertions.  An assertion which lacks both is useless and without merit (in much the same way that there is a treasury of merits donated by dead saints for the benefit of the living).

“Unless I am convicted by scripture and plain reason – I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other – my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen.” –  Martin Luther (and Jim West)

    That blog you quote is pretty poor in terms of theology, but I do think that a strong case can be made for the vicarious-ness of Christ – ie His believing for us etc.
