An excellent topic of discussion.

I know I said I was finished blogging for a while…and I am…sort of.

Go check out the post on Bror’s site titled ‘How do I know that I am elect?’

This is a real point of contention for Lutherans and Calvinists.

I gave Bror a heads-up on a post at our buddy Wayne’s site : and Bror felt it worthy to examine this list put together by A.W. Pink on how we can tell if we are elect (‘or not’…I guess).

Please leave all your comments on Bror’s site…or go to Wayne’s site and check it out there, and comment there…or both.




Lutherans on other continents




I’m not sure where these churches are (Ethiopia, I think). But it is good to know that people are worshipping God in the Lutheran tradition in many different languages, all over the world.

It’s good to see Christians of any point of view (Baptists, Pentecostals, Episcopalians, Catholics, etc.) around the world…but for obvious reasons ( I are one ) I feel a special bond with the Lutherans.




These folks are from Melaka.  Wherever that is.


I hear that there are even a few Lutherans in Kentucky…and several were spotted in Utah  😀








Off to receive what the world could never buy.

The forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. The pure gospel. The body and blood of our Savior.Last Supper by Orchard Lake

I need it. Not just once (way back then), but regularly. Because I am a sinner. Because the world cares not about me. Because the devil and his minions would rip me away from my Savior. Because there is a battle going on. It rages on (whether we realize it, or not).

This IS my body. This IS my blood. Broken and shed FOR YOU!

This is not some silly rememberance of something we can’t even remember. This is not some pious exercise where we can see how much faith we can gin up.

This IS God coming to us. Forgiving us. Feeding us. Assuring us. Loving us. Giving us His very life.

Just bread and wine? I don’t believe so. There is much more…much more to it than that.
