Posted by Walt Tappert on June 13, 19103 at 10:43:37:

A number of posters on a Catholic Discussion Board have been claiming that Martin Luther used a "snow-covered dunghill" as a ogy for justification. Some have claimed Luther made the ogy in his "Table Talk."

When challenged to provide a reference, others reduced the claim to say "it is a part of the Lutheran tradition, and is an accepted as such by Lutherans, who believe that it is an apt ogy for exaplaining their concept of justification."

A search of the CD-ROM of the American Edition of Luther's Works returned no hits for "snow-covered dunghill."

I have three questions:

1. Does anyone have any idea where Luther himself may have used "snow-covered dunghill" as an ogy for justification?

2. Can anyone cite prominent and respected *Lutheran* theologians who have used the phrase "snow-covered dunghill" as an ogy for justification?

3. In the event of negative responses for questions 1 and 2, can anyone cite prominent and respected *non*-Lutheran theologians who have embraced a "snow-covered" dunghill" as an apt ogy for justification?

I must confess that I've not heard the ogy used by Lutheran theologians or in Lutheran churches. I am really quite curious as to how this particular ogy became attached to Martin Luther.

Thanks in advance.
