‘By What Authority?’

 In Luther's Pulpit (Kirk) by crbassettJoin Pastor Mark as he works from an article by James Nestingen, on how Lutherans understand the Word of God,  and where we (any Christian) derive our authority to preach, teach, and proclaim the Word, and administer the sacraments.

Discussion of James Nestingen’s article

Pastor Mark’s class this week deals with an article titled ‘Scriptural Authority and the Lutheran Confessions’  by James Nestingen. It’s found in a book put out by the Word Alone folks titled ‘By What Authority?’ 


It’s a very interesting class.   And it may ruffle a few feathers.  I don’t think anyone gets away unscathed in this one.


We never shy away of feather ruffling if it is to promote Christ and His gospel for the forgiveness of sins.


Listen in and feel free to comment pro or con or indifferent.
