I’ve been continually singing the praises of confessional Lutheranism since the day it discovered me.
Confessional Lutheranism is intensely Christ-centered, historical, traditional, sacramental—with a rich hymnody and well-educated clergy.
It has rescued me from legalism , from fad driven American evangelicalism and from my own unique brand of mysticism.
It’s theology is intensely gospel-driven and it’s mantra is–
grace alone, faith alone, scripture alone, Christ alone.
If that weren’t even to convince you of its appeal, consider exhibit A.
This is the gift my beloved retired Lutheran pastor brought to my house a few days after the fire, in a ‘Lutheran Disaster Response’ bag.
There were 3 items in the bag.
I rest my case.
Be ye converted.
That’s funny stuff.
