and don't peek into the next student's soul, either

In the previous post, I suggested you Google keywords "faith" and "good works" for an introduction to this theological controversy, and I predicted Google would spew back something on the order of 112,321

Wrong. Google spewed back 419,000 hits.

The top hit was a college term paper for sale, and Martin Luther's resolution of the Controversy is thoughtfully provided:


Academic Term Papers Catalog


13778. FAITH, GOOD WORKS AND LUTHERAN TEACHING. Based on a review of the theological literature and the teachings of Martin Luther, this paper seeks to answer two questions:

1) can faith be taught according to Martin Luther or is it instinctive; and

2) should faith come before good works or vice versa?

Answers that faith is not instinctive and that good works are meaningless in the absence of faith. Written 1992. 5 pages, 27 footnotes, 6 bibliographic sources. $35

Copyright 1998 - 2003 Academic Term Papers. All rights reserved.


If you want to learn more about the Faith vs. Good Works controversy from this source, you need to buy the $35 term paper.

I don't recommend you buy the paper, sign your name to it, and turn it in for your homework while you're a student at a theological seminary. If I Googled it, maybe your professor will, too. And God certainly knows it's not your original work.
