The sermon seeks to address the Gospel, understood as "justification by faith through grace," to a particular yet current and popular campus attitude or pose. It speaks to the concern for "truthfulness," or for personal integrity and freedom, where all traditional statements are in question, and shows the "point of contact" - and the "point of conflict"! - between Christ and that. It does not attempt to treat the other side of the coin, namely, the concern for the '"truth of statement" in the Scriptures and then in the Confession and in theology - also essential emphases of the Reformation.
