The theology of glory

Pastor Don Matzat former host of Issues Etc. writes about the theology of glory versus the theology of the Cross. Here is an excerpt:

"Martin Luther accurately defined sin as man turning in on himself. While a theology of glory continues to turn you to yourself as you measure your growth in holiness against a plethora of spiritual experiences, the theology of the Cross turns you away from yourself. As a result of the conviction of the Law, you forsake your own good works and spiritual experiences and cling to the blood and righteousness of Jesus Christ."
