Walther Pflegte in Vorlesungen zu sagen: „Die analytische Methode sucht die Sache gleichsam zu finden. …”

Walther used to say in his lectures: “The analytical method attempts to find the truth. But in theology we cannot deduce the means from the purpose.”

„Wenn Sie in der Lehre von Gott nicht alle Gedanken aus der Schrift nehmen, sondern auch eigenen Gedanken Raum geben, so wissen Sie nicht, ob Sie nicht Gott aufs erschrecklichste lästern.”

"If, in the doctrine of God, you take not all thoughts from Scripture, but also give your own thoughts room, you do not know whether you are not blaspheming God in the most frightful manner."

Theology only from Scripture  –

„Wir müßten bei der Annahme, daß die Welt im Raum sei, die Unendlichkeit der Welt lehren.”

“If we assumed that the universe is in space, we would have to teach the infinity of the universe.”

Infinity, space

D. Walther pflegte zu sagen: Der Teufel wollte durch Anrichtung von Ärgernissen das gottselige Geheimnis „Gott ist geoffenbaret im Fleisch" verächtlich machen. Selig ist, der sich nicht ärgert!

 Dr. Walther used to say: The devil wanted by presentation of offenses with the mystery of godliness "God is revealed in the flesh”.  Blessed is he that is not offended! (Matt. 11:6)

Then faith often will be engen­dered, as Walther used to remind us, even before the word “faith” has been mentioned.

Walther used to tell the story of a man who was troubled by the expression “obedience of faith.”

“Den Papisten ist die contritio nicht etwas, was Gott durch das Gesetz tut, sondern was der Mensch selbst tut. Ihnen ist Buße so viel als Büßung, Genugtuung.”

“To the papists the contritio is not something that God does through the Law, but what man himself does. To them repentance is so much a penance, a satisfaction.”

Contrition, repentance;

Lectures, 1874

Sehr richtig sagt Walther: „Die Gegenwart des Leibes und Blutes Christi im Abendmahl ist nicht auf das Verklärtsein des Leibes Christi zu gründen. …”

Walther (Lectures, 1874) is entirely right in saying: “The presence of the body and blood of Christ in the Lord’s Supper must not be based on the glorification of the body of Christ. … But this is a false support, and false supports are just as dangerous as open denial.”
