Luther Quote #2

5 Months before the fateful Oct 31st 1517, Luther would write: ‘Our theology and St. Augustine are progressing well, and with God’s help rule at our University. Aristotle is gradually falling from his throne, and his final doom is only a matter of time. It is amazing how the lectures on the Sentences are disdained. Indeed no one can expect to have any students if he does not want to teach this theology, that is, lecture on the Bible or on St. Augustine or another teacher of ecclesiastical eminence.’ LW 48:42

In other words, ‘Why don’t we lecture on God’s words rather than men’s words; on the wisdom of God, rather than men!’
