Synopsis:

Martin Luther’s famous work, On the Bondage of the Will, was written in 1525 in response to Desiderius Eramsus’ Diatribe on the Free Will. Luther’s main Scriptural arguments and his point by point refutation of Diatribe, which he calls A Display of the Forces on Luther’s Side, are contained in part VI, divided into seven sections. This paper focuses primarily on just one of those seven sections, Luther’s argument in support of his assertion: Free Choice May Do the Works of the Law But Not Fulfill the Law. Part one is a detailed analysis of Luther’s argument, and especially his use of Scripture to support it. Part two suggests a few strengths and weaknesses of Luther’s argument considering their broader theological ramifications. Finally, part three is a short theological reflection on Luther’s argument, and specifically how a right understanding of both the law and the Gospel impacts a Christian’s experience of his or her faith.
