Paul and Luther

Devotional for Saturday, October 28, 2017
This devotional is brought to you by Pacific Press® Publishing Association.

Martin Luther viewed justification as the central scriptural doctrine. It is, he claimed, "the master and ruler, lord, governor and judge over all other doctrines." And it is the unique Christian doctrine that "distinguishes [the Christian] religion from all others."

     Ellen White highlighted the opposite side of that truth when she wrote that "the principle that man can save himself by his own works lay at the foundation of every heathen religion." It is no accident that Paul placed justification by faith at the core of his gospel. Early in their lives both Paul and Luther were Pharisees at heart. Both had hoped to win God's favor through amassing merits on the balance scale of judgment. But that attempt, as both learned, was an impossible task.
