Our Battle Cry

Remember, it's Jesus who saves sinners for God's glory.

May we all echo the rallying cry of the great Reformers who expounded upon the following Biblical truths...

"Sola Scriptura" -- "Scripture Alone"
"Sola Gratia" -- "Grace Alone"
"Sola Fide" -- "Faith Alone"
"Solus Christus" -- "Christ Alone"
"Soli Deo Gloria" -- "To God Alone Be Glory"

This is our battle cry. We've been given our marching orders.

Now it's time to humbly submit to His direction for our lives so that we can plant the seeds of faith that the Lord will water in His perfect timing and according to His perfect will in order to make more and better disciples of Jesus Christ.

Grace and peace to you and yours!

Thank you for visiting A Lutheran Layman! Please feel free to leave a comment or a question since we do not exercise censorship. We've seen a similar policy with other blogs and it's worth repeating: Please act as if you're a guest in my home, and we'll get along just fine. I think anyone would agree that the kind of back-and-forth that is characteristic of blogs/chat forums is becoming tiresome for all of us. Still, we should confess, edify, and love (and contend and defend when needed). Bottom line? Search the Scriptures! Apply Acts 17:11 to anything and everything you find here and, if you do happen to disagree with something you find here (which is certainly ok), or think I'm "irresponsible" and "wrong" for writing it, then please refute my position by supporting yours with...Scripture and/or the Confessions. I don't think that's an unreasonable request, especially for those who identify themselves as "Christians" here, right? Besides, Proverbs 27:17 tells us "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend" and 2 Timothy 3:16 says, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." If you have an opinion that's great, I welcome it, but try to support it using God's Word. I mean, if the goal here is to help us all mature spiritually (myself included) then it should be easy to follow through on this one simple request (I'm talking to all you "Anonymous" visitors out there). Grace and peace to you and yours!
