Really, I am not an original thinker.
If you have been reading this blog, especially if you have enjoyed the "We Stand for.." entries, then you are getting and earful, not of my words, but of the Lutheran Confessions.
No, I did not quote them directly. I did, however, take each article of the Augsburg Confession and explain it for a modern day audience. Only the last 3 or 4 posts were "free-form".
So Lutherans, read your Bibles. Read your confessions. Know what you believe so that you can give a proper defense for the hope that is in you.
