It’s a pretty neat concept. You can download it for just $49. Um…no.
Key questions: 1) Does font equal faith? 2) Does one’s writing font/style indicate one’s attitude and confidence?
No. And No.
While a neat idea (and a costly one), using the famous font of a famous theologian won’t guarantee faithful writing and teaching. False doctrine can be shared via any font.
Content matters. No matter your favorite font or writing style, may your faith and confidence and belief in the truth of God’s Word always be evident.
Someone once asked Martin Luther, “Do you feel that your sins are forgiven?” He answered, “No, I do not feel that my sins are forgiven, but I know it just as sure as that there is a God in heaven, for feelings come and feelings go, but the Word of God shall stand forever.”
Indeed. It’s a fact. Shall we say, “Facts over fonts” or “Faith over font” to get this point across? No matter how you say it (font), what you say (facts/truth of the Gospel) matters.
“Indeed, it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,9 EHV)
By grace alone,
Pastor Stephen Luchterhand
