As promised: Luther on Purgatory

Nothing about dung, snow, or aliens? I would have thought you would offer a link from a Lutheran i.e. not Catholic, not blog) source, one that cites the exact quote that you offered up in a Caucus thread:

Luther thought of us as a dung hill, completely depraved, and God covered us with his righteousness like snow on the surface, but we were still dung underneath. For Luther we merely have declared of us a justitia aliena (an alien justice).

It appears that I am more interested in the facts — what Luther actually said and believed. And it appears that you are more interested in the statement of the author about what Luther would have called Catholics.

Do you think that might be a little hyperbole on the part of the author. I could not find the exact quote, but will look for the justice one.
