‘Theological Conversations’ releases ‘Seeking a Correctable Conscience’

In the seventh installment of Theological Conversations for 2017, the Theology, Formation and Evangelism ministry of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) presents Seeking a Correctable Conscience by John L. Thompson of Fuller Theological Seminary. Seeking a Correctable Conscience — with the subheading Here I stand … but d’you mind checking my exegesis?” — looks closely at the words “Here I stand,” attributed to Martin Luther during the Reformation. Thompson’s paper is designed to create conversations about “freedom of conscience,” a topic that Christians have discussed for centuries — ever since Martin Luther spoke of his conscience being “captive to the Word of God.”
