      There are no salient points, MC. All there is is muddled points...that's my point.

      Many who are in a manic state can be quite passionate emotionally about many things (or a depressive or anxious state as well). As I said, I wouldn't doubt that Luther would qualify for some type of "disorder" as it were, should we have had him as a specimen today.

      If being passionate equals being insane, then it would seem Jesus was insane.
      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      It doesn't really matter if Martin Luther was insane.

      His theology is kind of crazy.

      Saint Jude, author of the new testament letter.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      I do not claim to know what Martin Luther may have meant by the words Sin Boldly but it strikes me as bad theology and bad pastoral practise to advise people to sin.

      What Luther meant was that as sinful humans...we'll sin. Even though try as we might to not sin, we will sin. So live your life, not in constant fear that you'll sin in some way, but that you're a child of God, forgiven by Jesus' death. Luther spent way too many years in fear that the Lord would not forgive his sins. His epiphany that our sins were forgiven at the cross gave him much peace.

      So, in short, Luther wasn't say to go out and sin.
