Most people are in #1

Christian Religion #1:

Requires your effort. You lift yourself up and make yourself more acceptable to God by what you do, or don’t do.

Jesus Christ can, and will help you in those efforts.

 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Christian Religion #2:

There is nothing that you can do to improve your status in God’s eyes. But Jesus Christ declares you to be totally righteous and acceptable…for His sake.

Jesus Christ does everything, for you.

Here’s the last class on a ‘Lutheran Piety’ from this past Sunday:

 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Pastor Mark gives an overview and wraps things up very nicely.

This is probably the closest Pastor Mark will ever come to a ‘how-to’ talk about the Christian faith.

There’s some good comments from some of the folks in the class explaining how this Lutheran view of the Christian faith was inside of them all along…even while members of another Christian denomination.

 

It’s a very good class.

Pass them along to someone who could use some real freedom for a change.

Oh…and don’t expect to be thanked for it.
