Thesis 5: A fake sinner will only merit a fake saviour. A true sinner will, by faith alone, merit the righteousness and forgiveness of a true saviour…Be a sinner!

“Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mark 2:17 ESV)

See Luther Quote #5 for the explanation.

Luther Quote #4

‘So when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: “I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is there I shall be also!’

Martin Luther, Letters of Spiritual Counsel, trans. and ed. Theodore G. Tappert (Vancouver, British Columbia: Regent College, 2003), 86–87.
