About A Lutheran Layman

All Things Lutheran, Which Means All Things Orthodox Christianity (In Layman's Terms)

"
For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!" (1 Corinthians 9:16)

I No Longer Apologize For Being A Lutheran, But...

"The first thing I ask is that people should not make use of my name, and should not call themselves Lutherans but Christians. What is Luther? The teaching is not mine. Nor was I crucified for anyone. How did I, poor stinking bag of maggots that I am, come to the point where people call the children of Christ by my evil name?" -- Martin Luther

If That Doesn't Satisfy You, Then Please Consider...

"I am a Lutheran for the same reason I am a Christian. It is not by choice but by grace. The teachings of the Lutheran Church place Jesus at the center because the teachings of the Scriptures place Jesus at the center. No other confession demonstrates such fidelity to the truths of God's Word. No other confession so glorifies Christ by placing Him at the center of all it confesses and teaches. Being a Lutheran is truly all about Jesus." -- Daniel Preus

Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith
I believe I'm a wretched sinner, but I'm also a sinner who's saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. I believe in God, the Father Almighty. I believe in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord and Savior. I believe in the Holy Spirit. I believe in one God, Trinity in unity, and unity in Trinity. I acknowledge and accept all the canonical books of the Old Testament and the New Testament as the divinely inspired and revealed Word of God. I acknowledge and accept all the Confessional Writings of the Lutheran faith contained in the Book of Concord to be the true and genuine exposition of the doctrines of the Holy Bible. In summary, I believe that the Scriptures of the Old Testament and the New Testament as the written, inspired, and inerrant Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and practice. In addition, I accept all the Symbolical Books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God, to wit: the three Ecumenical Creeds (the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Athanasian Creed), the Augsburg Confession, the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcald Articles, the Large Catechism of Luther, the Small Catechism of Luther, and the Formula of Concord. Finally, I believe that the Lord's means of grace for me and for you is found in His gracious gifts and signs to us, or through His divinely instituted ministry of the preaching of His Word and the administering of His Sacraments.
