Previous Topic (March 15th & 22nd): Luther's Letter "Whether One May Flee From a Deadly Plague"
Last week during Sunday Morning Bible Class, we began working our way through a letter written by Martin Luther in 1527 regarding the proper response that leaders ought to have had while serving in the midst of the Bubonic Plague.
We took special note of Luther's evangelical approach to the situation: to people's local circumstances, including weak or strong faith, and to what benefit they could be to their neighbor.
As you finish reading through Luther's letter at home for Bible Class this week, please ponder again Luther's evangelical and pastoral advice and how it may apply to us today as we seek to love our neighbor, respect our government, and honor God's Word.
Notice on pages 237-238 how fear, terror, and horror come from Satan. Consider what Luther says is the proper response to this.
On the bottom of page 240, note what Luther identifies as the proper motivation for loving our neighbor.
On page 241, see how Luther encourages us to strike a balance in loving our neighbor so that we don't put ourselves in harm's way thoughtlessly so as to test God.
Notice how Luther, on page 242, sees man-made methods of fighting dangers as blessings from God rather than an indication of our distrust or lack of faith. In other words, it is allowable and even wise for us to use man-made medicines and use good hygiene or clean our houses in response to such situations.
The full letter can be found here and printed for note-taking if you wish.
