The theology of glory is all about my strength, my power, and my works.
Luther’s theology of the cross has impacted major theologians and centuries of theology, including the present, and yet it is weakened by its reactionary theological determinism, reductionism, and understandable failure to properly integrate fluid, melioristic, and pro-creation kingdom : The theology of glory insists that a person do something to earn his own salvation. It refuses to acknowledge the “folly” “evil” etc. of the cross and tries to make the cross into a glorious example we can mimic, if it acknowledges the reality of the cross at all. The theology of the cross is the opposite.
Deification through the Cross is a salutary rebuttal of the postmodern fragmentation that assumes no single, normative soteriology can apply globally.
