In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther draws some interesting conclusions from creation and the entrance of sin into the world:
1162. We were created under the open sky; and the fact that we now live under roofs and in houses is because of sin. And it is just like a sickroom with us, with many pans around and bandages. That is, we must have chambers, living rooms, houses, food, drink, etc. Earlier, before the fall of Adam, we were like young spirits, who ran about naked. At that time, we didn’t need carpenters, masons, houses, etc.. (p. 253-254)
