For Holl, "Luther did not appeal to a natural law." Although using terminology akin to natural law arguments, which admittedly causes some confusion, Luther is seen by Holl as a forerunner of Hume, setting apart the fundamental connection between is and ought that sustained the medieval doctrine of the natural law along the lines of Aristotelian entelechy.If Troeltsch's Luther is a "restored" relic of medieval Catholicism, Holl's is the beacon of modernity.The first is related to Luther's understanding of the relationship between law and gospel.The gospel is the end of the law in the sense of bringing the power of law to termination.
At the core of it lies, obviously, the experience with Nazism.
Here the problem became one of adjustment or non-adjustment to the earthly stations (Stände) of the state, family, economy, and the church, as they were defined in medieval times, and by Luther himself.
If Troeltsch saw in Luther a fundamental adjustment, Holl sustained a theonomic principle in Luther's understanding of Christian morality, for which the norm was lex charitatis and not lex naturae. However, in spite of the theonomic orientation of Holl's exposition of Luther, the way in which he insisted on Luther's break with the natural law tradition and on the separation between is and ought brought the suspicion that for Holl Luther would be defending the autonomy of institutions in the tradition of Kant's definition of the private use of reason by which one is compelled to accept their internal rules. Lau's two kingdoms was in fact an attempt at rescuing the uniqueness of the Reformation (over against Medieval Catholicism) without succumbing to modern secular autonomy (Eigengesetzlichkeit).
Luther was working simultaneously with two theological blueprints of very different origins; two informing theories, as the philosophers of science would call them.
It was almost like trying to get orange juice by squeezing together apples and bananas.
