In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther gives advise to those who want to study theology:
“2146. He who wants to study theology and accomplish something is a fool, and will not become a theologian. The highest art of a future theologian is that he very carefully differentiates between the cleverness of reason and the Word; that is the wisdom of God. For those who confuse the two get heaven and earth mixed up.” (p. 216).
