Luther and the Freedom of the Christian

Posted by Ros Clarke, 22 Jun 2017

In the final lecture of the 2017 Church Society Conference, Revd Dr Lee Gatiss investigates Luther's work on the freedom of the Christian, asking why it is that reformation Christians like us are so often known for traditionalism and the insistence on rules?

Lee Gatiss examines the nature of Christian freedom in Luther’s work both before and after the publication of his 95 Theses. Central to Luther’s theology is justification by faith alone, which frees Christians from their bondage to sin and from the burden of seeking to please God. And yet reformation Christians like us are so often known for traditionalism and the insistence on rules. What then can Luther teach 21st century Christians about Christ, whose service is perfect freedom?
