On today's program, I dealt with the relationship between faith and reason. I began with a discussion of Luther's own thought on the topic, while addressing criticisms that he is an irrationalist. I then discussed this in relation to Luther's distinction between the two kingdoms. I then discussed the idea of paradox and contrasted this approach with that of Zwingli and later Calvinism.

On today's program, I addressed the teaching of objective justification. I responded to some false understandings of this idea, and also responded to some criticisms. I overviewed some of the basic arguments for the teaching, and read citations from Lutheran theologians in the past on the issue.
