Theologia Germanica: The cause for hell

Thursday, September 26, 2019
    Commemoration of Wilson Carlile, Priest, Founder of the Church Army, 1942
    You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!
    —Acts 7:51 (NIV)
    Nothing burneth in hell but self-will. Therefore it hath been said, “Put off thine own will, and there will be no more hell.”
    ... Theologia Germanica [1518], Anonymous, ascribed to Johannes de Francfordia, (1380?-1440) & Susanna Winkworth, tr., published anonymously by Martin Luther, ch. XXXIV (see the book)
    See also Acts 7:51; Ps. 75:5; Matt. 16:24; Phil. 2:3; 1 Pet. 5:8; 2 Pet. 2:10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, extinguish self-will in me.
